Five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman: The stand-out stats for Triple Gameweek 35

With Manchester United playing three times and another eight clubs featuring twice, Triple Gameweek 35 will be a pivotal part of our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) seasons.

So, with that in mind, I’m going to pull out some relevant player and team statistics ahead of Friday’s deadline.

It makes sense to focus on this week’s round of fixtures but I’m also keeping one eye on the run-in, with differentials at West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur also making an appearance.

Shall we begin?



Earlier this week, I was fortunate enough to join fellow Pro Pundits Lateriser and Zophar on The FPL Wire.

We ran through all the teams involved in Triple Gameweek 35 and also talked targets for the run-in.

The chat complements this column and goes a bit deeper into some of the subjects covered, so if you’re into that kind of thing you can check it out via the link below:

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years

      can you do a combo of both? Check out Andy's video on Free Hit

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Id do Robbo Shaw

    4. Kabayan
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I'll go with Robbo and Maguire

  2. TheDragon
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Is this ok for this week? Zaha or Greenwood?

    Mendy
    Rudiger, Shaw, Philips
    Salah, Jota, Fernandes, Zaha/Greenwood
    DCL, Iheanacho, Kane
    Forster | Lingard, Coady, Veltman

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      defeinitely Greenwood. I think he will feature in all3 games

      1. Aston VII iia hahaha
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        He's my Captain

    2. Kabayan
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      You should think about next gw too. Zaha.

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Rest of team look ok?

        Ye that’s why I’d lean to Zaha

        1. Kabayan
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Good to go

  3. Scholes Out Forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is it crazy that Im prioritising getting in Shaw/Maguire over Bruno? Already have Greenwood and would require a hit to get Bruno in, while I can potentially do a defender for free

    1. Checko
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I don't think its crazy. Bruno output has been decent but not great recently, and Maguire probably going to get more minutes (although way less upside obviously).

      Not sure id call it a great idea, but not crazy I dont think. Particularly if you can do it for free vs a hit.

      1. No Professionals
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        it's not been decent, it's been awful. 6 blanks in last 8.

    2. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I don't think it's crazy either.

      Plus with Bruno's cost, I have to rip up half my team to accommodate him and have some playing assets next week.

      I'm going Maguire & Greenwood.

  4. Zlatan F.C
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Would you do Vydra to Benteke for a -4?

      1. Arteta
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Never.

      2. JollyGoodYellows
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Nah, I'm sure you can make better transfers than that.

      3. Toby Lerone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Benteke couldn't hit a barn door.

    • vincentwsho

      A) Ederson + Dias --> Forster + TAA

      B) Ederson + Dias --> Guaita + Robbo

          Wait for the United lineup tonight but if Greenwood is rested then definitely.

        2. Bobby Digital

            • 4 Years

            Hopefully. Wait for Hogdson to hoot.

              Cheers. That's my preference as well

                This

          2. Lukakus talking
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Current FH draft. Auba worth a punt? Or could change formation and bring Vardy in

            Guaita
            TAA - Castagne - Shaw
            Salah - Auba - Bruno - Zaha - Greenwood
            DCL - Nacho

            Thanks in advance

            1. krawiecus
                2 months, 27 days ago

                If starts today or Lacazette is fit, not worth it imo

                1. Lukakus talking
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  Yeah, will check out tonight's minutes for both United and Arsenal players. Thanks

              • MMN
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                Got exactly the same team with Vardy instead of Auba atm. The Leicester game being moved back a day tipped it for me as I thought he might get benched for United. Auba vs Brom could vs gold though.

                1. Lukakus talking
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  Thanks. Will see how tonight's games go and make a last minute call tomorrow.

              2 months, 27 days ago

              Hello lads! What's your prediction for Arsenal vs Villarreal? Which team goes through?

              1. JollyGoodYellows
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                As much as I'd love a full set of English clubs in the UCL/EL finals I think Villa real will do it.

              2. Lazymedia
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                With Jekyll & Hyde Arsenal, who knows? The defence could implode at any moment, The attack could struggle against a block defence. Or they could rip a timid Villareal apart.
                I just hope Tierney plays, as Xhaka at left back is inviting trouble.
                And Arsenal will surprisingly miss the long cross field passing of David Luiz, if not the penalty conceding defending.

              3. Major League Shocker

                • 1 Year
                2 months, 27 days ago

                I'll go with 4-3 (agg) to Arsenal AET. Villarreal should have put it away in the first leg, but didn't.

            3. Chandler Bing
              • 5 Years

              When is the Palace presser? Would like an update on Zaha.

              Best Man U players to get in this week? I already have Bruno

              1. TheDragon
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                Maguire, Shaw, AWB, Greenwood, Rashford

                Pick your poison

              2. linkafu
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 27 days ago

                two of Rashford Greenwood Cavani
                They will all get 2 games each

              3. Major League Shocker
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 27 days ago

                I bought Greenwood and kept Shaw. Doubt they will get more than one CS; surprised double defence is as popular as it is.

            5. MMN
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Pick 2 on a FH -

              A) Digne (whu, avl)
              B) Robbo (SOU, mun)
              C) Vardy (NEW, mun)
              D) Castagne (NEW, mun)

              1. krawiecus
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  B+C if you do not have TAA, A+C if you have TAA and dont need the Vardy money elsewhere.

                    AC

                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  AC

                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  Sadly 0.3 short of AC so currently on CD. Although not sure who I prefer between Digne and Castagne ...

                  Happy to know Vardy is the winner from the 4.

                  1. Ruinenlust
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 27 days ago

                    Castagne has blank in 36, Digne has Sheffield...

                Thoughts on son + vydra + coady + Mendy to Greenwood + Watkins + digne + Pickford (-8)

                1) yes
                2) no

                  I have 1FT. I only have 7* playing next week

                  Forster Mendy

                  Salah* Jota* Son* Lingard* Greenwood
                  Nacho Kane* Davies

                  Should I forget about getting Bruno (Son>Bruno) and concentrate on getting a player for next week?

                  i.e. Rudiger/Holding > Digne or Davies > DCL

                  I'm worried I might lose ground

                  Help me with this:

                  A Fernandes + Digne

                  B Rashord + TAA

                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 27 days ago

                    Fernandes probably more likely to play all

                      2 months, 27 days ago

                      Yes but TAA versus Digne is what's drive me crazy

                    • 4 Years

                    Dunk, Kane to Maguire, Vardy for -4.

                    Would mean I bench Rudiger.

                    1. linkafu

                    Vydra to Watkins -4 ?

                      2 months, 27 days ago

                        Yes unless you already have 11 DGW players anyway

                      Areola Lingard Alonso Dunk

                      Thoughts on these moves?

                      GW35 - Kane, Son & Pereira to DCL, Bruno (C) & Greenwood for -4

                      GW36 - Bruno & Iheanacho to Kane & Foden/Gundo for -4

                        Even if I think Kane will outscore DCL with only one fixture, I like your moves.

                      Will wait for Zaha news but how does this FH draft look? Would you change anything?

                      Henderson
                      TAA, Digne, Castagne
                      Salah, Bruno, Greenwood (C), Zaha
                      Iheanacho, Vardy, DCL

                      Subs: Guaita, Ward, Phillips, ESR

                      1. MMN
                        • 7 Years
                        2 months, 27 days ago

                        Gone exactly the same but Guaita and Shaw over Henderson and Digne. And Bruno captain but Greenwood is tempting.

                        1. Bleh
                          • 4 Years
                          2 months, 27 days ago

                          Ah yeah I did initially have Guaita & Shaw instead of Henderson & Castagne but I have this nagging feeling Shaw won’t play all 3 games. Think Henderson is a safer pick. Going all out with Greenwood (C) though.

                          1. MMN
                            • 7 Years
                            2 months, 27 days ago

                            I think I prefer Shaw over 2 vs Henderson.

                            1. Bleh

                              2 months, 27 days ago

                              Also Palace just don’t keep clean sheets. Not that Leicester do much better but at least Castagne carries attacking threat (as does Shaw).

                      Which United defender:
                      A) AWB
                      B) Shaw
                      C) Maguire

                        Shaw more attacking threat, maguire prob more likely to play all 3

                        Possibly, would prefer a pool defender over a third attacker.

                          If helps your team for 36 as well (and youre not gonna buy all players youre selling striaght back) + Zaha is fit, then yes. Would consider just Digne and DCL

                        Any changes on a FH? Reasoning would be much appreciated!

                        Guaita
                        Shaw, TAA, Castagne
                        Bruno, Salah, Greenwood, Zaha

                          Would you not rather have AWB or Maguire over Shaw? They seem much more likely to start all 3 with Telles lurking

                          1. MMN
                            • 7 Years
                            2 months, 27 days ago

                            No I think I would rather have Shaw with 2 games even given that I am not expecting many cleanies. His attacking potential is too much higher for me.

                          I'd turn Zaha into Robbo

                          Defenders are often the ones to be on in DGWs. Palace are unlikely to crush SHU. 2-0 2-1 the most likely results. Robbo has two good cs chances given United fixture schedule and record against top 6 and there are also baps and assists.

                          Don't rate Vardy pick especially but he might score in a DGW.

                          1. MMN
                            • 7 Years
                            2 months, 27 days ago

                            I did previously have Robbo over Zaha but Southampton and United are both fairly attacking and Robbo's assists have dried up too. If Palace score 3 goals across the 2 games Zaha is surely looking at 8-12 points at least.

                            Didn't have Vardy either as I thought he might be rested due to cup final. But replaced Digne/Robbo with Vardy due to extra day rest for Lei post rescheduling. Who would you pick over Vardy?

                            1. pingissimus
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              2 months, 27 days ago

                              Fair dos on Robbo Zaha.

                              Don't particularly like Vardy pick but he's logical enough. The closest alternative is Watkins who is in form but the fixtures aren't there.

                            Surely his expected goal involvement is not much better and given the fixtures you'd prefer Zaha if fit?
