A total of just 4 fixtures this Gameweek is going to prove a problem for several managers, as major changes will be made to the squad to adjust to this problem. The FREE HIT chip will come to the rescue for thousands of managers, but the ones who have utilized it will have to rely on some punt picks and truckloads of luck. Fortunately, FYS helps you choose some hidden gems a hectic Gameweek 31.
1) AARON MOOY
Fixture: Crystal Palace (H)
Huddersfield Town midfielder Aaron Mooy is expected to start this week against fellow relegation contenders Crystal Palace. He assisted once against Bournemouth in a 4-1 victory the last time he completed 70+ minutes and manages to get that occasional goal and assist as games come by. Huddersfield’s and Mooy’s performances go hand in hand plenty of times, and with Crystal Palace their first of several easy fixtures ahead, we can expect set-piece king Mooy to come up with some magic of his own.
2) JACK BUTLAND
Fixture: Everton (H)
Stoke’s dismal defence has provided Jack Butland some intense goalkeeping sessions, as each match tests his abilities and Butland adds a number of crucial saves to his portfolio. Barring an understandably poor game in terms of points against Manchester City last gameweek, the goalkeeper collected 17 points in just 2 games against Leicester and Southampton before that.
He made 15 saves in those 2 fixtures and even collected 3 bonus points in both the games. His record before these fixtures have been impressive too, and the English goalkeeper is having a fabulous run. This week proves a comparatively easy fixture contrary to the ones lying ahead, and the goalkeeper has the best chance to continue his run against Everton this Saturday.
On present goalkeeping form, Stoke’s Jack Butland is in a league of his own by producing a save every fifteen minutes over his past four fixtures. The Englishman has made twenty four saves over this period, conceding only twice. #FPL
3) PATRICK VAN AANHOLT
Fixture: Huddersfield (A)
A noticeable fullback who loves to make overlapping runs, Van Aanholt possesses speed, great dribbling ability and a cheeky knack for chipping in with crucial goals. PVA can really give your squad that boost if he performs well, considering a player of his calibre is owned by just 2.2% of the managers in FPL. Not only has he scored a goal in the last 2 fixtures, but both those goals came against top guns Manchester United and Chelsea, which will give him a massive confidence boost to make an impact up ahead in the coming fixtures.
Although Palace lost both the games, both his goals were threatful for the opposition and put them on the back foot. If he comes up with a similar performance against a comparatively easier team in the form of Huddersfield this gameweek, then this will be a good week in FPL.
