In this article, we will outline the Herd Purchases [Players most transferred in] and Lost Causes [Players Most Transferred out] ahead of Gameweek 30. We will also give our viewpoint, on whether the transfers are justified or not.

Let’s start with the Herd Purchases.

Herd Purchases:

Heung-Min Son:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Arsenal [h] – 3
GW 28: Crystal Palace [a] – 1
GW 29: Huddersfield [h] – 16

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Bournemouth [a] GW 31 – Blank [h] GW 32 – Chelsea [a]

Discussion:
Son had a bumper Gameweek 29 and is in great form ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Bournemouth.

Verdict:
Get him in while he remains in good form, but be conscious of blank Gameweek 31 and a tough Gameweek against Chelsea coming up.

 

Leroy Sane:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Leicester City [h] – 0
GW 28: Arsenal [a] – 13
GW 29 – Chelsea [h] – 3

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Stoke City [a] GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Everton [h]

Discussion:
Sane is now playing regularly in the City team, and with Sterling doubtful, may be a good choice.

Verdict:
Keep him in, but be aware of the Blank Gameweek.

 

Sane and Sterling

 

Willian Borges Das Silva:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: West Brom [h] – 1
GW 28: Manchester United [a] – 9
GW 29 – Manchester City [a] – 2

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Crystal Palace [h] GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Tottenham Hotspur

Discussion:
Willian is on fire, but Chelsea has not been in the best form recently.

Verdict:
Chelsea’s form along with the Blank Gameweek may be enough reason to consider not bringing in Willian immediately.

 

Glenn Murray:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Stoke City [a] – 2
GW 28: Swansea [h] – 12
GW 29 – Arsenal [h] – 7

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Everton [a] GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Leicester City [h]

Discussion:
Murray has been a consistent force in the Premier League with 11 goals this season and is also cheap.

Verdict:
Bringing him into the team won’t be the worst decision at this point.

 

Riyad Mahrez:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Manchester City [a] – 1
GW 28: Stoke City [h] – 2
GW 29 – Bournemouth [h] – 10

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – West Brom GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Brighton [a]

Discussion:
Mahrez has slowly returned to form and is now bringing big point hauls.

Verdict:
Keep him on the team for now, and see how he performs in the next few Gameweeks.

 

Lost Causes

Raheem Sterling:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Leicester City [h] – 8
GW 28: Arsenal [a] – 0
GW 29 – Chelsea [h]- 0

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Stoke City [a] GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Everton [a]

Discussion:
There is talk that Sterling may be able to recover in time for this Gameweek.

Verdict:
Keep him in your team if you already have him, but don’t bring him in otherwise.

 

Henrikh Mkhitaryan:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Spurs [a] – 2
GW 28: Manchester City [h] – 2
GW 29: Brighton [a] – 2

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Watford [h] GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Stoke City [h]

Discussion:
Arsenal have registered 4 losses in the last five matches but bounced back spectacularly against AC Milan last night.

Verdict:

With a plum fixture at home against Watford on the back of a goal against AC Milan last night, Mkhitaryan may be a good buy ahead of Gameweek 30.

 

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

 

Nacho Monreal:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Spurs [a] – 2
GW 28: Manchester City [h] – 2
GW 29: Brighton [a] – 2
Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Watford [h] GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Stoke City [h]

Discussion:
Monreal’s injury came at a bad time for Arsenal, with a streak of losses. He may be available for the next game against Watford.

Verdict:
Don’t buy him until after the Blank Gameweek at least.

 

Jamie Vardy:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Manchester City [a] – 5
GW 28: Stoke City [h] – 2
GW 29 – Bournemouth [h] – 2

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – West Brom GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Brighton [a]

Discussion:
While Vardy has not scored a lot of goals lately, he is not in horrible form either.

Verdict:
Taking him out of the team ahead of a match up with cellar dwellars West Bromwich Albion may not be such a good idea.

 

Callum Wilson:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 27: Huddersfield [a] – 5
GW 28: Newcastle [h] – 2
GW 29: Leicester City [a] – 2

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 30 – Spurs [h] GW 31 – West Brom [h] GW 32 – Watford [a]

Discussion:
Bournemouth is one of the few teams to not have a blank in Gameweek 31. Wilson is sure to play unless there is an injury.

Verdict:
Keep him in the team for any chance points he may bring in the otherwise blank Gameweek.
