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:

    On free hit:

    1: Zaha or Robertson

    2: Maguire or Shaw

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Zaha
      Maguire

    2. Scholes Out Forever

      4 months, 18 days ago

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Id do Robbo Shaw

    4. Kabayan
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'll go with Robbo and Maguire

  2. TheDragon
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 18 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
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      defeinitely Greenwood. I think he will feature in all3 games

      1. Aston VII iia hahaha
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        He's my Captain

    2. Kabayan
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      You should think about next gw too. Zaha.

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Rest of team look ok?

        Ye that’s why I’d lean to Zaha

        1. Kabayan
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Good to go

  3. Scholes Out Forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    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
      4 months, 18 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
        4 months, 17 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
      4 months, 17 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
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Would you do Vydra to Benteke for a -4?

    1. Arteta
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Never.

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

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

    3. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Benteke couldn't hit a barn door.

  5. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    A) Ederson + Dias --> Forster + TAA

    B) Ederson + Dias --> Guaita + Robbo

  6. winchester

    2. Toby Lerone

  7. Bobby Digital

    Is Zaha fit?!

    1. Bob_the_builder
      • 5 Years

      Hopefully. Wait for Hogdson to hoot.

      1. Bobby Digital

        This

  9. Lukakus talking
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 18 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
      4 months, 17 days ago

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

      1. Lukakus talking
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

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

    2. MMN
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 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
        4 months, 17 days ago

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

  10. Arteta
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

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

    1. JollyGoodYellows
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 18 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
      4 months, 17 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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 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.

  11. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

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

  12. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

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

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Maguire, Shaw, AWB, Greenwood, Rashford

      Pick your poison

    2. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

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

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 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.

  13. MMN
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 18 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
      4 months, 18 days ago

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

      1. Sid07
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        AC

    2. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      AC

    3. MMN
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 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
        4 months, 17 days ago

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

        1. MMN
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          On a FH (Free Hit).

  14. Sid07
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

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

    1) yes
    2) no

    1. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Could pay off

    2. krawiecus
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Do it if you have spurs cover for 36 or route to it

    3. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      just do a -4 and leave in mendy

  15. Toby Lerone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Bottomed on last post!
    Mendy and rudiger out for Guaita and Maguire? Below Is my team 0.0itb

    Mendy
    Rudiger Shaw TAA
    Salah Bruno son lingard Jota
    Kane ihenacho

    Thoughts? Thanks

  16. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

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

    Forster Mendy
    TAA* Veltman* Rudiger Holding Fofana
    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

  17. linkafu
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Help me with this:

    A Fernandes + Digne

    B Rashord + TAA

    1. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      *Rashford

    2. Sid07
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A

    3. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Fernandes probably more likely to play all

      1. linkafu
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

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

    4. krawiecus
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A 100%

  18. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Dunk, Kane to Maguire, Vardy for -4.

    Would mean I bench Rudiger.

    1. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yes

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Kane to Vardy, start Rudiger no hit?

  19. Daghe Munegu
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Vydra to Watkins -4 ?

    1. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Nope

    2. krawiecus
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yes unless you already have 11 DGW players anyway

  20. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Hey fam! 2 FT 0 ITB

    Martinez
    TAA Maguire Targett
    Salah Jota Son Pereira
    Kane Iheanacho Watkins

    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

    1. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Looks good to me.

    2. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

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

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Cheers both

  21. Bleh
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    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
      4 months, 17 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
        4 months, 17 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
          4 months, 17 days ago

          I think I prefer Shaw over 2 vs Henderson.

          1. Bleh
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 17 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).

  22. RichieW
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    how am i looking (10 man Draft League) not alot of free options

    Forster
    Kabak Phillips Godfrey Shaw
    Greenwood KDB Milivojevic Saka
    Kane Cavani

    Bench: Pope Wilson ASM Aurier

  23. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

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

    for TGW only, selling him after

    1. RichieW
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

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

    2. MMN
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'm going Shaw on a FH.

    3. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Shaw

    4. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A

  24. McSauce
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Is Mane Overkill if I already have Jota & Salah

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yes

    2. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

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

  25. Hazardous1983
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Is - 8 worth it this week no free hit

    To get digne maguire zaha dcl

    1. krawiecus
      4 months, 17 days ago

      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

  26. Hazardous1983
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    shaw or maguire better option

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Who do you think plays more?

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        *scores more

    2. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      AWB

  27. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Which one

    a) Forfana & Davies > Maguire & DCL
    b) Rudiger & Davies > Digne & C.Adams/Watkins

    1. RichieW
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      a

    2. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A

  28. Hazardous1983
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Free hit badlly.needed this week

  29. MMN
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

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

    Guaita
    Shaw, TAA, Castagne
    Bruno, Salah, Greenwood, Zaha
    Iheanacho, DCL, Vardy

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      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
        4 months, 17 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.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      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
        4 months, 17 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 Years
          4 months, 17 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?
