Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 20 – The Burning Questions

Eden Hazard

After an incredibly high scoring Gameweek, we have another bunch of decisions to make: all so soon, all so fast. We take a look at the 3 burning questions which FPL managers should strongly consider before setting up their team for Gameweek 20.

1. How to prepare for the Blank GW & Double GW?

West Ham United and Tottenham have no games in GW 21 and have two in GW 22. Managers must start preparing for this vital period, as strategic decisions in such a phase are what differentiates a good manager from a lucky casual.
For those with Harry Kane, they can just bench him for the BGW and use the FT in GW22 to get a West Ham defender, or double up on Tottenham with Son or Eriksen. Kane should be the undisputed captain choice for GW 22 too.
To sum, after ensuring one has the proper starting 11 in GW 21, having two or three Spurs and West Ham players can move you up the rankings.

2. Considering Everton’s defence seriously

After registering an impressive shutout against Chelsea, it is almost impossible to ignore the value an Everton defender can bring to your team. Sam Allardyce’s men have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 6 PL games, and player like Jonjoe Kenny (£ 4.5 m), Cuco Martina (£ 4.3 m) and Jordan Pickford (£ 4.8 m), who has picked 45 points in the last 6 games are all players managers must seriously consider and can turn out to be bargain buys.

3. The captain dilemma : The problem of plenty

Harry Kane (Southampton – H), Morata and Hazard (Brighton – H), Salah (Swansea – H), Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero (Newcastle – A) and Alexis Sanchez (Crystal Palace – A) are all very solid armband options for this week. Last week was a very high scoring one due to the majority of the most captained players delivering. Southampton and Newcastle are hardly good at defending, Mo Salah cant stop scoring and Chelsea, Arsenal should be able to overcome their opponents with ease. This decision is a tough one to make this week, and till now my captain is Mo Salah. Who are you gambling upon?
