The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 19: Tips, captains, team news and best players

Merry Christmas from Fantasy Football Scout

After a four-match Gameweek 18 stretched Fantasy Premier League (FPL) squads to the limit, Gameweek 19 is back with more of the same.

Liverpool v Leeds United, Wolverhampton Wanderers v Watford and Burnley v Everton were postponed on Thursday and Friday, leaving Fantasy managers in a fight to get 11 players out again – and that’s before any other matches fall by the wayside.

The first of two FPL deadlines in the space of 48 hours will pass at 13:30 GMT on Boxing Day afternoon and we’ll have all your Fantasy essentials on this page as usual, from Scout Picks to team news.

Our regularly updated ‘Covid watch’ article remains the place to go for a club-by-club rundown on the coronavirus pandemic, meanwhile.

This page will be refreshed between now and the FPL deadline so keep checking back for the latest content – and for fresh updates on whether we’ll get any more Covid-enforced postponements.

A very merry Christmas to all our readers!
