Who are the most secure starters ahead of the FPL restart? Part two

Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Leicester City and Liverpool fall under the spotlight as we continue our series of articles looking at which players stand the best chance of regular starts in the season run-in.

Even if the Premier League sides vote against a proposal to allow up to five substitutions per match, some teams will be playing twice a week for the next two months and rotation could be widespread.

Earlier in the week, we looked at the season data for Arsenal, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Brighton and Burnley to assess which Fantasy Premier League assets have been the most secure starters and which look to be more at risk of managed pitch-time.

We now turn our attention to the next five top-flight teams as we work down the list alphabetically.

Motivation may be a factor for a number of the teams below the closer we get to the climax of 2019/20, with Crystal Palace and Everton comfortably mid-table, Leicester looking likely to seal a Champions League spot and Liverpool only a win or two away from an elusive Premier League crown.

The possibility of a few end-of-season dead rubbers taking place exists, then, and it could be that a number of the managers of the teams below will look to any “meaningless” fixtures to experiment with system and personnel.

Until then, all we can do is assess the data we have to hand, ready our benches and keep our fingers crossed.

CHELSEA

With the likes of Tammy Abraham (£7.5m), Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m), Christian Pulisic (£6.9m), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£6.3m) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.2m) all likely to be back in contention after injury when the Premier League resumes, trying to anticipate Frank Lampard’s starting XI from week to week will be an almighty task.

Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) has made the most starts of any Chelsea player this season and indeed was the only one of the Blues’ squad who started all six matches between Gameweeks 24 and 29.

Even then, with the form of Reece James (£5.1m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) at full-back and wing-back and the wealth of centre-half options at Lampard’s disposal, there would have to be a modicum of concern about the long-serving Spaniard.

Elsewhere in defence, Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.4m) had wrestled his place back from Willy Caballero (£4.8m) just before play was halted in March and Antonio Rudiger (£6.0m) had started 12 of Chelsea’s last 13 games after returning from injury.

Further forward appears to be even more of a crapshoot.

The Blues’ squad is a bloated one and there are only a handful of spaces to go round for the 15+ players vying for a place in midfield and attack.

Abraham and Mason Mount (£6.2m) have been Lampard’s go-to guys for much of the season.

The former started every single match he was available for between Gameweeks 3 and 25 (although he was substituted in 14 of those 22 starts), before a troublesome ankle problem curtailed his involvement.

Mount has appeared in every single Chelsea league match this season, meanwhile, with all bar four of his 29 appearances coming from the start.

Mount was only benched once for Chelsea’s tightly packed-in fixtures from Gameweeks 14-21 and both he and Abraham were regularly flogged twice a week when the Blues were in UEFA Champions League action.

Willian (£7.0m) had been a regular too but three benchings in five Gameweeks shortly before the current break is something to note, as is his uncertain future: the Brazilian’s contract expires at the end of the season.

Rotation has also been common in the middle of the park but the penalty-taking – and currently suspended – Jorginho (£4.9m) has started more often than not.

It remains to be seen if N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) plays much of a part in the run-in, so Jorginho could potentially have one fewer positional rival (if Kante can be considered that given the different skill-sets) in the midfield axis.

CRYSTAL PALACE

Where Chelsea can give team news writers headaches, Crystal Palace are a more predictable beast.

A lot of Roy Hodgson’s personnel changes this season have been enforced, with the Eagles enduring a wretched run of injuries, particularly in defence.

Joel Ward (£4.3m), Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m), Gary Cahill (£4.4m) and Vicente Guaita (£5.0m), all of whom have suffered fitness issues this season, appear to be the first choices in their respective positions, although the second centre-half spot is up for grabs now that James Tomkins (£5.0m) and Mamadou Sakho (£5.0m) are back to challenge current incumbent Scott Dann (£4.3m).

Tomkins was a constant starter from Gameweeks 9-26, so perhaps has the edge.

All of that doesn’t bode well for popular budget FPL defender Martin Kelly (£4.1m), although he remains, as always, only a Ward injury away from a recall.

Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m) is one of the first names on the teamsheet and Jordan Ayew (£5.2m) is seemingly not far behind him, with Hodgson moving the Ghanaian forward wide-right to accommodate first Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) and then Christian Benteke (£5.7m) up front from Gameweek 23 onwards.

Central midfield is perhaps tougher to call, with hitherto regular Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m) only among the substitutes shortly before the suspension of play as Hodgson stuck with a settled, winning side despite the Serb’s return from illness.

James McArthur (£5.2m) looks secure, at least, with the only match he has failed to start in 2019/20 enforced due to fitness issues.

EVERTON

Carlo Ancelotti has frequently tinkered with his Everton side since taking charge in Gameweek 19, although the goalkeeper and front two have been immovables to date.

Jordan Pickford (£5.2m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.5m) have been ever-present starters under their new manager, while Richarlison (£8.3m) would likely have followed suit had he not missed two games through suspension in January.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m), whose form has been patchy at best either side of Marco Silva’s dismissal, has also been handed a start on all nine occasions that he has been available for selection – although how many of those owed much to the Toffees’ dearth of available central midfield options, with the likes of Andre Gomes (£5.2m) then injured, is another question.

Few players escaped the Ancelotti rotation over the busy December and January period, with Lucas Digne (£5.7m), Djibril Sidibe (£5.0m) and Seamus Coleman (£5.3m) among the players who have tasted bench duty at least once under the new regime.

Centre-half rotation has also been commonplace, with Mason Holgate (£4.3m) the mainstay at the back, although even he was handed a shock benching in Gameweek 26.

An injury to Yerry Mina (£5.3m) should at least ensure Holgate’s place for the time being.

The wide-midfield positions look like no-go areas, although few Fantasy managers will be interested in Everton’s underwhelming stock of wingers anyway.

LEICESTER

Brendan Rodgers has favoured a settled spine this season, with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel (£5.4m) and centre-half Jonny Evans (£5.3m) both ever-presents.

James Maddison (£7.5m) and Caglar Soyuncu (£4.9m) have only been benched once, both in the same match against West Ham United in December.

It’s perhaps still worth noting the circumstances of that Gameweek 20 fixture, as Rodgers had named a severely weakened team with the matches piling up – although it seems less likely that the Foxes will have to contest two matches in the space of 48 hours this summer, as they did over Christmas.

The festive period was also when Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) began to run into trouble.

Handed paternity leave in Gameweek 20, Vardy has suffered calf and glute problems this calendar year and has only started six of Leicester’s nine league games in 2020.

He indeed was only a substitute in the Gameweek 29 win over Aston Villa, although still emerged from the bench to rack up an 11-point haul.

Three months without competitive football may have given Vardy ample time to fully recover from whatever was affecting him but it will be interesting to monitor how Rodgers handles his star striker, with the Foxes likely to be playing twice a week in league and cup until the end of 2019/20.

Compatriots Dennis Praet (£5.3m) and Youri Tielemans (£6.1m) may very well share game-time based on what we have seen in 2020 (five starts apiece), while we can surely expect more of the same for Ayoze Perez (£6.2m), even if five alterations per game aren’t allowed: the Leicester midfielder is the most-substituted player in the Premier League this season, having been taken off in 18 of his 21 starts.

Harvey Barnes (£6.2m) is not far behind him, having been withdrawn on 16 occasions.

December was not a happy time for the Foxes’ wide-men, with rotation frequent, although Barnes was at that point not in the sort of form that we have seen in 2020.

One other issue worthy of note is Ricardo Pereira‘s (£6.3m) knee injury, which is expected to keep him sidelined for the rest of 2019/20.

James Justin (£4.7m), then, looks poised to continue at right-back and provide a cut-price route into the Leicester defence.

LIVERPOOL

Liverpool have been up there with Burnley in terms of having a settled side this season.

Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) is an ever-present, as he was in 2018/19, while Alisson (£6.2m) and Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m) have started every match that they have been fit and available for.

Joe Gomez (£5.3m) has started every game bar one from Gameweek 16 onwards, meanwhile, with even that absence enforced by injury.

It’s a relatively serene picture, selection-wise, until we look at December.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) were benched for the first and only time this season in that month, while the front three of Sadio Mane (£12.5m), Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) were also handed one rest apiece in Gameweeks 15-16.

Salah and Mane’s other absences from the starting XI this season were fitness-related, while Firmino was named as a substitute in Gameweek 5 after a late return from international duty.

The reason we highlight December, of course, is that Liverpool are about to embark on a similar run of nine league fixtures in the space of 35 days – albeit without the distractions of domestic, European and global cup competitions.

Klopp will surely go full strength until the league title is in the bag, which may take only one or two matches, but what happens next is anyone’s guess.

A record points total is well within the Reds’ grasp but, even if the champions-elect do go all-out to achieve that, Klopp’s track record in busy periods does suggest some minute-management could be in the offing at the very least.

    Going to be hard to ditch Liverpool assets till the title is secured as they will surely be full strength till then.

    Hoping that Harvey Barnes has secured starts and at least 70 mins or so...

    1. Nightcrawler

      Pool will be full strength even after the title is won. What would they be resting players for? Will look to beat records

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty

        1 year, 3 months ago

        Klopp will put his players well-being above records imo. Besides which he has a perfectly capable strong squad to share out minutes and blend in players like Minamino. Perfect chance to use remaining games as a pre-season and I guess get PL winners medals for those that need 5 appearances.

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Only time will tell which route klopp takes. Both possible but wouldnt sell any pool after title is won until we get to see klopp actually resting big names

          1. Jon Walter's Hatty
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Will be a dilemma after the 3rd week City game when they then have Villa/Brighton/Burnley. Looks like rotation at that point to me.

            1. Bossworld
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              The average starting XI squad number is going to be 30-something isn't it by that point.

              1. Jon Walter's Hatty
                • 7 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                I think so. If I don’t use my WC straight away I think that might be the time to do so. Likes of Rashford, Kane etc might be catching the eye by then.

      2. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years

        The end of this season will pretty much be preseason for them. They will play but more rotation expected.

        Wanna bet on that?

        You like betting, right.

      "... Hoping that Harvey Barnes has secured starts and at least 70 mins or so ...". The article is correct *but* Barnes' minutes/game increased dramatically after GW23 ...

  2. Nightcrawler

    Tottenham with 1 poisitive test

    Does that mean the whole squad has to undergo isolation since training had already started abd pL not starting according to schedule

    Fpl jumping the gun if thats the case. Was always better to call the game off then get in this mess

        Why not if they have been in contact training

          Just procedure, assumably due to the frequent testing.

          They have already been tested, same time the as the positive case, only that player goes into isolation.
          Be interesting to see if we know before deadlines who is positive and who is not, selections are going to be a nightmare..

          1. Nightcrawler

            That's far from idea, because you can have the virus and not test positive if you have only recently contracted it. So you can contract the virus from a team mate, test negative, then unwittingly pass it onto others including opposition players. Who then pass it onto their team mates and other teams.

              Thats what i was thinking but getting pool to hold that title far more inportant now apparently

                I agree, that's why the Bundesliga started first, so the EPL would have to start as well and Liverpool could win the league. I've also heard German players have reptile doubles who are playing in their places because they don't contract the Coronavirus.

              2. Top Mark.S
                • 4 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Liverpool have the title no matter which way the season ends though so once again a great argument mate

              That's it then, let's cancel the whole thing.

    If there is no possibility of a DGW after DGW39 then surely it makes sense to use the FH?

    Currently only have Grealish & KDB from the DGW teams.

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      That's what I'm planning to do if the FA Cup postponements can be played later in the same GW, but it's not full proof as coronavirus related postponements are still a possibility.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years

        Scenes if City v Arsenal got the chop for a second time, taking another lot of chips with it

          *third time 😯

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yup agree with that but a postponement this time would probably mean the legaue is scrapped. Haven't all the leagues been told to finish before August? That's what I remember reading.

        But Coronavirus is another reason I want to use the FH chip as early as possible. Never know when the league could be halted again and any of the players could test positive once it begins making it hard to nail the FH team later on.

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          If it brings the league to a halt again it may well be it. I'm thinking more of localised coronavirus postponements cause by an outbreak at a club or a lockdown in an area etc, they could be moved to a blank midweek (if those teams still aren't in the FA Cup) or played in the mid weeks around the FA Cup final or that weekend (if the teams aren't in the final)

    Didn't follow FPL.

    So everyone can make unlimited transfers now? And I still had a WC left, what will happen with it?

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope.

    2. TwiggsJameson

      NO

  5. Bury94
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    This time in 2 weeks Villa vs Sheff Utd will be nearly finished, we'll all have our Sheff Utd defenders and Grealish, then Samatta is going to score a last minute goal for Villa and we'll all be raging again. And I can't wait!

  6. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I have ( hopefully) 2 free transfers for restart. If I play FH in week 39 do I still have 2 free transfers going into week 40 or just 1?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Just the one.

    After Pool wrap up the title it’s probably time to invest in the champions league and relegation battle contenders right?

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years

      Id stick with pool until they show sings of complacency or heavy rotation

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • 11 Years

      Klopp has a winning mentality and will keep playing the same way he did pre COVID regardless of whether they win the league or when. IMO 🙂

    3. Party time

      Maybe

      Maybe not

    If I’ve used a FT every week during the break to ‘slow wildcard’ will I just have the one at the start ? Or will that be determined by fpl?

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Would be fair if our extra FT was carried over. FPL will decide.

      It’ll be a DGW

    Now that there are pre season friendly matches unlimited transfers is virtually assured.

    This re start is no different to a normal season start. Can u imagine being forced to go with your opening day team despite a full pre season worth of matches and info subsequent to that?

    Sorry wildcard holders. Dont see it happening.

      "Virtually assured"? possibly in some parallel universe, but certainly not this one. 😀

        Ok "virtually assured" is probably too strong.

        How about "highly likely" and "most certainly fair"

          It may make sense to you, but it doesn't make it highly likely though.

          What odds would you be willing to offer that you’re wrong?

      I’ll take that bet. Happy to do escrow.

      No need to be sorry, WC holders will actually have an advantage.

      We can fill team with dgw39 players, BB then WC GW40.

      BOOM!

      Since the friendlies were announced, the likelihood of a wildcard has stayed absolutely 100% the same... unknown.

    I havent logged in FPL for a long time, can someone explain me what does this beginning-of-the-season player selection means?

    Hi TOP MARK.S. Nice to hear you again 😉

    Seen a lot of comments about there being only 1 DGW from the remaining fixtures left- Even if the fixtures come out that way there is an extremely high probability i feel over the weeks that 1 team along the way may have a COVID scare and suddenly the team will have to be isolated for 7 days - resulting in another DGW potentially. Don't think its gonna be smooth sailing when we get the fixture lists. Im certainly not gonna waste my TC and BB in the early weeks. Only my FH in GW39 if confirmed double.

      When you say a "covid scare" what do you mean?

      The entire playing staff are all being tested, so an entire team would only need to isolate if they all got infected and tested positive.

        1 Member of the backroom staff get covid mid week... or anyone associated with the team...

        tests are being done now... but 3-4 weeks down the line is a different story.

        I just don't see it being smooth sailing

        they should actually also schedule City vs Liverpool in 39 and get it out the way incase of a 2nd wave and allow liverpool the chance to win it on opening weekend in case of any further cancellations.

          Why on earth would they give Liverpool the opportunity to win it early. This is the Premier League, not the Liverpool league. There are 19 other teams. Perhaps all the relegation threatened teams should finish their games first so it's fair who goes down in case the season has to stop. Or perhaps we should have the teams fighting for Champions League places play all their matches first so we have that sorted in case the league stops again.

            i agree with Wolves Ay We ... and i'm a Liverpool fan

          No. Play the schedule. If Pool can't win it now they don't deserve it.

      Well as you can only use one chip at a time anytime, you’ve kind of undermined your whole point.

      GW39 has already been confirmed as a dgw

  15. jason_ni
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    So given we have DBL first game back, do we think its better to hold the FH, or use now in case the season is completely derailed down the line?

    I have 2 dbl GW players as it stands, KDB and Auba.

    But then there will be no pressers for all the other teams. This FPL season is a write off as far as Im concerned! Should have an * beside the ranks for future years 🙂

    1. HamezMace
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      GW39 is the only confirmed planned GW so I think it makes sense to use a chip that week personally.

      Depends on each situation of course, some people already planned for an Arsenal v City match before the postponement, so might already have three City/Arsenal players, and most of us have at least one SHU defender, and maybe Grealish, so then FH might be wasted.

      You’re right about the massive unpredictability for the rest of the season though.

      1. HamezMace

        *planned DGW

      2. POLSKA GOLA
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I have 5 DGW players atm and considering BB with up to 7.
        Will save FH for an unexpected DGW down the line. Just mixing things up for fun really

      football season should have an asterisk but not fpl. Reacting to random bs is what the game's all about

    3. Pumpy

      Absolutely agree with you

    4. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Depends on your team and team news. A fit and rested Aguero or Aubameyang could be a nice TC pick against defenders rusty in the tackle.

    So, here's a thought.
    If we restart with unlimited transfers, will we be able to use our free hit chip !
