The Fantasy Premier League is back – here’s how to navigate the first week back

The Fantasy Premier League is back meaning you have one more thing to distract during the mind-numbingly boring coronavirus lockdown.

The Premier League restarts on Wednesday night with Arsenal taking on Manchester City and Sheffield United taking on Aston Villa.

The four teams all enjoy a double Gameweek – and with Fantasy Premier League allowing unlimited transfers ahead of Gameweek 30+’s deadline, FPL managers should capitalise by targeting players from all four sides.

Beyond those four sides there’s plenty for managers to ponder, with Spurs boasting a full bill of health (in stark contrast to their injury crisis pre-Covid-19) and Wolves boasting arguably the league’s easiest run in.

Here are ten players we think you should sign ahead of Gameweek 30+.

Goalkeeper

Dean Henderson, Sheffield United

Sheffield United are eased back into the season with double Gameweek fixtures against Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

Both opponents have struggled in front of goal and Dean Henderson stands a chance of adding to his tally often clean sheets in the league this season.

Defenders

John Lundstram, Sheffield United

He may be listed as a defender but John Lundstram plays in a more advanced role for his club and has popped up with a few vital goals this season.

Pick him and you stand a good chance of benefitng from clean sheet points and a slim chance of further points via goals and assists.

Caglar Soyuncu, Leicester City

With Ricardo Pereira out of the picture for the remainder of the season, Caglar Soyuncu should be managers go-to Leicester City defender.

The Turkish centre back is a bargain at £4.9m and with Leicester facing a goal-shy Watford side he could rack up a further clean sheet.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool

The most expensive defender in the game is worth every penny.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has set up 14 goals in the league this season and could easily add to his tally during Liverpool’s march towards a title.

Midfielders

Jack Grealish, Aston Villa

Aston Villa’s star man will have two opportunities to pick up points in Gameweek 30+ with his club taking on Sheffield United and Chelsea.

At £6.4m he offers excellent value and offers the best chance of attacking returns in Villa’s squad.

Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City

Manchester City issued Arsenal with a spanking last time the two sides met, winning 3-0 in what would be Freddie Ljungberg’s second last game in charge.

Belgian maestro Kevin De Bruyne scored two of the goals and could add to his tally when the two sides go head-to-head on Wednesday night.

The midfielder is arguably the league’s best player at the moment and should continue to deliver points for FPL managers throughout the remainder of the season.

Son Heung-Min, Tottenham Hotspur

Following military duty Son Heung-Min should be fighting fit for Spurs as they attempt to reignite their race for a top-four spot.

With Harry Kane returning to the starting lineup Son Heung-Min will be far from isolated up front and in with a better chance of picking up assist points.

Adama Traore, Wolves

One of the league’s chief entertainers Adama Traore has delighted Wolves fans, neutral and rivals with his stylish blend of skill, strength and speed.

The Spaniard is cheap as chips at £5.7m and with Wolves facing an easy(ish) run-in he could enjoy a fruitful finale to the season.

Strikers

Raul Jimenez, Wolves

Like Traore, Jimenez may be in line to enjoy more attacking returns this season due to weaker opposition.

The Mexican has been as safe a pick up front as any this year (and last) scoring thirteen and assisting six in the league so far this season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal

Aubameyang is possibly the only Arsenal star worth investing in, despite their double Gameweek.

The Gabonese has consistently delivered impressive points totals this season, scoring 17 goals and three assists so far this season.

Fellow Gunners are either overpriced or not productive enough.

Danny Ings, Southampton

Danny Ings has been deadly for a Saints side who have reinvented themselves this season.

The Englishman has notched up 15 goals this season and is the ninth highest point scorer in the league this season – not bad for a player who still costs just £7.1m.
