With Gameweek 31 being a complicated one because of the FA Cup duties of teams from England’s first division. Only 8 teams are playing and only 4 matches are there, rendering more than half the players in the league as unplayable and could end up making your week total points look like an embarrassment in front of more alert players and followers.
We have chosen some of the key players from the 8 Premier League teams that will be in action in the Blank Gameweek 31.
Firmino has been one of the best centre-forwards in the league this year and has led the line and the press perfectly for Liverpool. His clever on and off the ball movements and deft touches open up space for fellow forwards Salah and Mane to flourish in.
Not been as good as last season as he had a stop-start opening spell of the season, but the Senegalese has come into form of late and has been getting regular points from assists and goals.
One of the best players and a revelation this season, he’s tied on top of the goalscoring charts and also has had a hand in the highest number of goals this season. Has only failed to deliver points in one of his previous 6 gameweeks.
Has been one of Watford’s most consistent players and has chipped in with some crucial goals for the Hornets from time to time.
Even though he did not perform against Arsenal last week, he could prove to be a handful in the air for the Liverpool backline.
A reliable goalscorer who has been in good form lately and plays for a team which loves to attack.
Has had 4 goal contributions in the last 6 gameweeks and can be counted on to be a creative spark on the flank.
A defender who plays out of position, Smith has been the most consistent points earner in this team and is a certian starter.
Alex Pritchard (£5.4)
The winter window signing has been touted as an upcoming talent with great potential and he has added much-needed creativity to this team. He has only completed more than 60 minutes in his recent two games before Spurs and has 2 assists and a goal in them. As he continues to familiarize and get used to playing with his new teammates, his output could improve even further.
Steve Mounie (£5.9)
He has not always been the frontman for his team this season but he scored in consecutive games against West Brom and Bournemouth for the first time in his Huddersfield career and also showed his selfless side by setting up two assists in the Bournemouth game. At his price, he’s a great backup striker.
Rajiv van La Parra (£4.9)
A hard-working winger who always puts in a good shift for his team. He has been freed up to attack with more intent in recent weeks with the addition of Terence Kongolo at left back behind him. It is to no surprise that his goal at West Brom came after Kongolo had come on for Malone at left back. Due to this change up, he has scored in his last two games and should be considered as an inexpensive midfield addition who plays every week.
The talisman for his team returned to fitness last week and provided the assist for the second goal as his team won the second half by a goal. Hodgson will be hoping him to be the hero who saves them from relegation.
Roy: It’s been good to get players back from injury this week. We’re looking at a fuller squad, if not a full squad. Very happy about that. Zaha, Sakho, Loftus-Cheek and Cabaye all fit. #CPFC 🦅 #HUDCRY
Patrick Van Aanholt (£5.1)
An energetic performer down the left flank, he will be complementing Zaha and he is always will to get forward as shown by his late consolation goal against Chelsea.
Had been hampered by his early season injury but has shown good form in recent matches and will provide a good creative outlet down the right hand side. Has a target to hit in Tosun.
The other reliable and attacking fullback, he will be looking to provide his ever reliable quality service on the left.
The man who must replace Lukaku. Has worked his way to fitness and scored in consecutive matches as Everton try to shed the boring tag.
Easily the best player in the team and surely not one who would be willing to be even part of a relegated team. Is a slight injury doubt.
Will be looking to justify his place in the England squad and will want to impress manage Southgate for the starting spot.
