Why I’m considering Jarrod Bowen in my Free Hit squad for Blank Gameweek 31

One of the world’s best FPL managers, Tom Freeman, discusses West Ham, Burnley, Dele Alli and Chelsea as he looks ahead to Blank Gameweek 31.


With Gameweek 29 coming to a premature end due to coronavirus fears, focus has turned to preparing my squad for Blank Gameweek 31.

There are currently only four Premier League matches scheduled on that weekend, and with just five players from the teams involved in my squad, I’ll likely be activating my Free Hit chip in an attempt to break into the top 10k.

Aside from the obvious targets at Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Ham United interest me. I’ve been encouraged by a few of their performances recently, and now they’ve figured out their best formation and got to grips with David Moyes’ more direct, counter-attacking style, I think they’re worth a look.

Whilst I’ve been hyping both Michail Antonio (£6.9m) and Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) via my Spot the Differential column, right now, Jarrod Bowen (£6.5m) is my top target.

After a couple of substitute appearances, he was thrown into the starting XI against Southampton in Gameweek 28, and scored his first goal on his first start. He followed that up with a tidy performance at Arsenal, hitting the post and then later, forcing Bernd Leno (£5.0m) into a decent save. He also seems to have developed a good understanding with Jeremy Ngakia (£4.0m) at right-back, who could be a useful, cheap pickup himself.

Looking at West Ham as a unit at the Emirates, there was actually quite a lot to like – the line-up was positive, they asked questions and looked the more likely of the two teams to score (they managed 14 shots, six of which were on target); they just need to be a bit more clinical in front of goal.

Their opposition in Gameweek 31 also plays a part in my thinking as Tottenham Hotspur have kept only three clean sheets in 26 games since Jose Mourinho was appointed in November.

For those considering a move, I’ll leave my ‘Hitman’ custom table here. In this particular version, it focuses on midfielders using data from the last three Gameweeks, which coincides with Moyes reverting to a back four.

This table has been quite a handy tool for me this season, highlighting the likes of Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m), Harvey Barnes (£6.1m) and Diogo Jota (£6.4m) nice and early, which bodes well for Bowen, who features despite playing significantly fewer minutes than others on the list:

Another side showing form is Burnley, who have picked up 12 points over the last six games – only Liverpool have taken more. 

Charlie Taylor (£4.3m) and Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) have been excellent down their left side, which often sees the latter position himself in the half space. Nineteen of their 32 crosses on Saturday arrived via the pair.

Nick Pope (£4.8m) in goal, plus defenders Ben Mee (£5.0m) and James Tarkowski (5.1m) all look decent options, whilst the return of Chris Wood (£6.1m) is well timed. He scored and earned nine points against Spurs, and has now found the net four times since the turn of the year.

Despite it looking like the wheels have come off at Spurs, Dele Alli (£8.3m) seems to be returning regardless and has been putting up good numbers. Now it looks like he might be on penalty duties too, so he might be worth a spot.

The only other player I’m really considering outside of those mentioned above, and of course Liverpool and Wolves assets, is Sarr, though the fact they come up against Burnley puts me off – nobody has picked up more clean sheets than the Clarets at home this season.

If I do use my Free Hit chip in Gameweek 31, it has immediate implications, as I can look to take advantage by moving for a Chelsea player this week – something those navigating the blank via transfers may not be able to do, because let’s face it, they’ll probably have other priorities.

The appeal lies in the Blues’ opponents this weekend, my club Aston Villa. We’ve conceded more goals than any other side, we’ve faced the most shots at goal and continually get undone by set pieces. Whilst Chelsea haven’t been the most consistent of sides under Frank Lampard, they do seem to have turned a bit of a corner recently, and with a top four spot and the FA Cup still to play for, should have plenty of motivation.  

Billy Gilmour (£4.5m) looks quality, and has turned in two hugely impressive back-to-back performances. Against Everton, he completed more passes than any other player on the pitch, and whilst he didn’t claim an assist, his vision was key to both of Chelsea’s first half goals.

Mason Mount (£6.1m) was really good too, but it’s also worth noting some of the veterans’ importance, like Pedro (£6.8m), Willian (£6.9m) and Olivier Giroud (£6.5m). Giroud led the line superbly, holding the ball up and bringing others into play, and bagged a goal and set up multiple chances. I’m actually considering transferring him in for Danny Ings (£7.1m) this week.

Chelsea’s fixtures to follow the blank are appealing too, and they travel well: they’ve picked up the same amount of points on the road as they have done at Stamford Bridge this season, despite playing one less game, and scored more.

In terms of captaincy this week, I’ll be avoiding the Merseyside derby. It’s currently on Bruno Fernandes (£8.5m), who is up against one of the worst defences in the league right now. It’s fair to say he’s lifted the whole club since his arrival, and I see Manchester United comfortably beating Spurs.

So, here’s how I’m currently set up ahead of Gameweek 30, with Giroud likely to come in for Ings.

    Wilder:

    Enda is going to be out for a couple of weeks. He’s picked up an injury.

    Other than that the full squad is fit but Ben Osborn has come into that position and done really well so we have no issues with him slotting straight in.

      Is Osborn up against Saint-Max? Newcastle might actually score...

    What transfer in only for this GW? 1FT, 0.0 ITB. Planning FH GW31 and WC GW32.

    Was thinking of Stevens -> Zouma.

    McCarthy McGovern
    Robertson Stevens Lascelles Kabasele Rico

      Zouma is by no means nailed

        What would be a better move?

    It’s unfortunate we can’t stack all of our chips/WC for this GW. I would use them all.

      I'd want to save some for some potential summer madness GWs!

        Can’t see summer football happening unfortunately.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

      I wonder if there's a decent chance of GW31 and GW32 absorbing the fixture backlog

      Euro qualifiers will be cancelled - frees up two weeks in the domestic calendar

      FH & TC in those weeks if so could be an option

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I completely agree with this.

        But it all depends if any players tests positive

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Would also put them in a position of "only" having 60 games/6 rounds of fixtures left to play as of Monday 6th April

      2. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I think the PL will be shut down before GW31.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          In fairness that would probably be closer to the right thing to do (I. E. Total shutdown/postponement)

          I think they might balk at it though - too much money & too many vested interests at stake

          Unless it becomes something mandated by the gvt etc

          1. jtreble
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Team quarantines, however, are going to force the PL to shut down imho.

      Whats the rush? If the season doesn't come to a conclusion, I'll just be writing off this season, and move on to next year.

      If it were to end next week, not like you are going to take anything from fpl perspective from the season, its a write off.

      If the games are postponed, at least you'll still have the chips when they come back around.

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I just want to maximize my points before the league is shut down.

    This is obviously a fast-moving scenario and events could overtake plans, eg a player contracting the virus may change everything, and CMO advice could change, but as it stands, this weekend’s sport looks set to go ahead as planned.

    1. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      This makes no sense at all - it is fast moving, so why not get ahead of it now, by at least playing the games behind closed doors starting now?

      Thats how serie a started, but it was too late by then, and the season has been postponed.

      The fa are showing no logical thinking here, cancelling a game last night, as 5 players came into contact 12 days before hand, but letting 400k spectators continue to attend games this coming weekend is ok?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Just following the government's lead - to be seen to be doing something is most important thing.

      2. mirkomen77
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Liverpool Atletico open doors was a massive mistake

  8. jason_ni
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    From a purely speculative point of view, what do you think happens if the season doesn't end.

    Can they give liverpool the title, can they relegate those in the bottom 3 right now.

    Who gets the top 4?

    Legal mine field, but they surely cant decree a champion/relegation until it is mathematically 100% certain?

    1. BNMC
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I saw someone on Twitter make a suggestion that involves giving LIV the title, putting 2nd-7th in playoffs to see who gets CL or EL, leaving 8th-14th as-is, and putting 15th-20th in relegation playoffs.

        Not sure how I feel about that but it's an idea.

        1. jason_ni
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I'm not a liverpool fan, which will sway my point of view, but until they are 100%, why should City let them take it by default?

          We all know they will win the league if it continues, but that doesnt mean they couldnt implode, any more than they have over the past week 3 defeats in 4 games is it now?

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            As a Liverpool I’d agree. If it were another club in this position and they awarded it to them you’d understand given the big lead but mathematically still possible to lose

            Think i saw re Italy they’re considering playoffs for Europe and relegation with no champions

        2. DAZZ
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Man City would never agree to that as long as they can mathematically still win the PL.

          1. BNMC
              2 months, 18 days ago

              That was my first reaction when I saw the tweet

              • 4 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Thats what Im saying, its a time bomb waiting to happen if the cant close out the season, is it all just a write off, no one relegated/promoted, as you were start next august in a (hopefully) post covid world.

        3. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Super sixes in a ladder - like squash or pool - starting with current league positions

        4. MOTHRA
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          The ONLY fair route in the case of leagues being unable to finish, is complete abandonment. No one wins anything, no relegation, no promotions.

          Weirdly it would mean Liverpool don’t win the league, but do retain the CL title.

          I can’t see it being done any other way.

          1. jason_ni
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            If this were to happen, I dont think you would say liverpool retained the CL, as much as city retained the pl, it would just go down as "No Winners" for this season.

            1. BNMC
                2 months, 18 days ago

                A cup is different. At least you can stop a league because there is always a "winner" but a cup has to go all the way.

            2. Klaren
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              As a Man Utd fan, I have to say that this would be unfair for Liverpool as they've already won the league, just not mathematically guaranteed it yet.

              I think taking the current standings as final would be a fairer approach.

              1. jason_ni
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Its def not fair for liverpool not to win the league, but is it anymore fair to relegate likes of Norwich/Villa/B'Mouth, when there is plenty of games left for them to survive?

                You can't crown a champion if its not completely confirmed, but not relegate the other 3.

                Thats why its so tricky.

            3. Brosstan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              If a competition is abandoned or voided, it is recorded as if it never happened. There will be no official records of the PL 19/20 season, just noted as "canceled due to pandemic". Same With the CL if its canceled. No one will be seen as retaining the title, the entire year is just skipped over.

                • 3 Years

                Highly unlikely.

              • 4 Years

              You think its as simple as that?

              Norwich/Villa/BMouth will just roll over? Not a chance, more likely that the season is just scrapped.

            2 months, 18 days ago

            Wgen league was cancelled in September 1939 (granted they had only played 3 games) there was no champion - Blackpool had been top.
            Next season 1946-1947 started with same 22 leagus that had been in division in 1939-1940.
            There is the precedent.
            Sorry Liverpool.

              It’s the only fair way.
              It’ll be a complete reboot. Season never happened.

          Might use my WC this week, FH next week and BB the week after (depending how many weeks we have left) to secure my ML...would backfire if the season continues though

            think my ml is top 3 payout, went from 2nd to 4th after mondays vardy/barnes show.

            Annoying as I still have chips to play, and I know I will at least get back to 2nd if the season continued as normal.

              • 5 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Yeah I've been top for a long time, but the guy behind me has clawed it back to a 20 point gap using all his chips, I'll lose my mind if he pips me to it

          1. BNMC
              2 months, 18 days ago

              I have 8 at the moment, could rise to 10 if I use my FTs between now and then. Maybe I'll use one at most; having 2 FTs at all times seems necessary with the circumstances.

              9, potentially going to take hit to get 10 but only if I want the player long term

            A basketball player from Real Madrid has tested positiv on Corona virus. As a result the entire club (including football) is put into quarantine for 14 days.

              FPL is just a game so no worries.

              Do all the sensible recommended things and you and yours should be fine.

                I'm still recovering from a collapsed lung I suffered earlier in the year - over the worse of it, but I am still having scans etc.

                Was a spontaneous pnuermorix, so out of the blue, before that I was relatively healthy, sporty 36 yo.

                For sure I am a bit concerned that I'd prob be more suspect than a "normal" healthy individual!

                  Crikey. Hope you get back to fighting fitness soon.

                  I am more concerned about my mum - who has had pneumonia a couple of times - than I am about myself.

            Bringing in a Burnley defender for 31.. is Bardsley worth a punt over Taylor? Seems to have more chance of an attacking return...

              Bardsley not scored in I think it is 7 years.
              Taylor chucking in plenty of crosses.

                    Can still put Salah / Mane as captain? Just need to make sure the vice captain plays on Sat

                    Watford game more likely to be 0-0. Conversely I think WH more likely to win.

                  Two UCL ties cancelled.

                  Surely they're better off just postponing all the football with euro 2020 almost surely getting pushed.

                  30 days of aggressive isolation measures and good hand hygiene and we'll have moved up ahead of Covid 19 making it a very manageable situation and a return to normal day to day life.

                  What are the changes they cancel rest of season before it should end? Or postponed most likely and continue it to June?

                    High. Doubtful.

                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Just cancel the season already.

                    • 3 Years

                    Cancel? Doubtful. End early? Likely.

                    1. Brosstan
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 18 days ago

                      The precedent is cancellation, like what happened in 1939 when the war broke out.

                      1. jtreble

                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 18 days ago

                        Highly unlikely. I’m going to guess the PL is going to go with final standings.

                        1. Konstaapeli

                          Very much doubt it. Cancellation much more likely outcome.

                    Isn't playing games behind closed doors more likely?

                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 18 days ago

                      Gathering 20+ people in crowded dressing rooms is unnecessary risk of spreading the virus.

                    Let’s just wait and see what happens. I’ll be very surprised if they cancel or end the season .
