Gameweek 25 Review , 4 Lessons Learned

H17 2020-02-06 Others

1) Salah is a must have


A second consecutive 10+ point round in GW 25 saw Mo Salah become the highest scoring player in FPL this season. His run of form has meant the absence of Sadio Mane hasn't damaged Liverpool's win streak. Mane's absence has seen Salah's price extend to a season-high of £12.7m, and with a favourable run of fixtures ahead, it appears as though the forward is worth every bit of this price.

2) Goodbye Lundstram?

It would appear as though the reign of 'Lord Lundstram' is over, as the FPL defender started off the bench for the second game running. However, manager Chris Wilder did say he was "thrilled" with Lundstram and his attitude against Crystal Palace in GW25. He remains a rotation risk, and considering his blank fixture in GW28, many have jumped to replace him with other cheap options.

3) Manchester United are too unpredictable

United's form as of late has been turbulent, to say the least. A 2-0 loss to Burnley at home and a 0-0 draw to Wolves means it has been a long time since we've seen a United goal. This raises questions as to the value of the popular asset of Anthony Martial. As well as this, United's two new signings; Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo, will be a big risk to bring in at this point, as no one can predict how United will fare in the coming weeks.

4) End of the Vardy Party?


Despite still being the highest scoring forward in the league, Jamie Vardy now has not scored since GW18. While he missed a few rounds with injury, Leicester's main man has blanked three games in a row now, seeing his ownership drop significantly. However, after a meeting with Manchester City in two rounds, Leicester have a strong run of fixtures, which could see a return to form for the league's top goal scorer.
