Merry Christmas to all of you, another GW & another FAQ article as a set of PL fixtures are fast approaching on Boxing day.
FAQ1) Who are the best replacements for Son?
Son Heung-Min will miss the upcoming festive period matches after seeing the red card last Sunday vs Chelsea, which means he will be suspended until GW 22 clash vs Liverpool.
No wonder to see Son top of transfer out chart ahead of GW 19 with more than 700K managers (until the time of writing) parting company with the south Korean, after Spurs saw their appeal to the red card rejected by the FA. In fact, if you are yet to own De Bruyne, it would be the easiest swap ever & Son suspension will not be a big problem at all. Else, if you already a KDB owner there is wealth of options in various price brackets- if you still want to bet on Mourinho’s troops then (Deli Alli 8.8) has become the go-to option in spurs attack. Taking into consideration the hectic schedule & several rotation worries Geralish, Maddison & Willian appears to be the optimum picks in medium-price brackets for the upcoming 3 GWs, while it remains to be seen where (Richarlison 8.0m) will be deployed in the Field by new Toffees Head Coach Carlo Ancelotti. However, if you want to make a ground in your mini leagues & need a differential Pick you can go to (Lucas Moura 7.1m) or (Paul Pogba 8.4m) who had an eye-catching performance in 26 minutes cameo from the bench against Watford & was denied twice by Foster, along with an attempted assist only for Greenwood to waste.
FAQ2) Is having 2 Sheffield defenders is a good idea?
With such a tight turnaround between GWs, FPL managers will need to take decisive decisions to cope with upcoming Hectic schedule, one of them whether it is worth doubling-up on Sheffield defense or not.
In fact, Sheffield has been impressive since the start of the campaign-with no sides having registered more clean sheets than the blades (7),moreover they are yet to lose in the road this season.no wonder to see (John Lundstram 5.2) as the most owned player in FPL with 49.9% ownership & highest scoring defender as well in the game so far, no doubt he is a must-have asset having started the season priced at just 4.0m & playing out of position as central mid-fielder. Adding to the clean sheets potential (George Baldock 5.0m) & (Enda Stevens 5.1m) have registered 2 Goals & 1 assist & 2 clean sheets between them both across the past 3 GWs. So getting any of Baldock, Stevens or even Goal keeper (Dean Henderson 4.8m) along with Lundstram would be a good move but for short term only, As apart from Gw19 & GW 22 home clashes with Watford & Westham respectively ,fixtures are started to be turning against the blades (Man city twice - Liverpool & Arsenal) from now up to GW 24.Taking into consideration that another budget defenders Kelly & Rico will be enjoying a decent fixtures across the same period.
