Hello & Welcome back everyone for premier league restart after the long break due to COVID-19 hit, hope you are all ok & in a good health. As most of you know that four teams (MCI, ARS, SHU & AVL) will play twice in GW 30+, so we will try to dig deeper in their stats hereunder to capitalize on what is likely to be the only double game week this season.
Stat 1) Man City vs Burnley Recent meetings:
Man City vs Burnley Recent meetings:
Total: MCI 14-2
Tips: With FPL managers granted the option of making unlimited transfers or deploying their Free Hit chip ahead of Double Game week 30+, most of managers are likely to triple up on Man City assets. The blue part of Manchester will be hosting a double header against Arsenal & Burnley, where we are expecting big hauls from City premium assets. As shown in the stats above City have managed to find the back pf the net 14 times in their last five head to head meetings vs the Carlets along with 3 clean sheets & just a couple of goals conceded ,which may bode well for Guardiola’s men. (Sergio Aguero 11.8m) ,(KDB 10.6m) & goal keeper (Ederson 6.0m) have all seen a reasonable surge in ownership in the past couple of days & are considered the most attractive options to ensure full coverage from City.
Stat 2) Arsenal Has Kept 5 Cleans Sheets in their last seven Matches across all competitions:
Arsenal Has Kept 5 Cleans Sheets in their last seven Matches across all competitions:
Tips: Despite having two away games for double GW30+, FPL managers shall consider a defensive coverage from Arsenal. Arteta's troops appeared more organized in the back before the break, having kept five clean sheets in their last seven matches. a match against goal shy Brighton may offer a glimmer of hope for arsenal defensive assets along with potential attacking returns against a Brighton side who has just kept two clean sheets in the last 17 GWs. (Hector Bellerin 5.5m) would be a good pick offering returns at both ends of the filed, while a clash at the Etihad stadium against defending champions City would grant (Bernard Leno 5.0m) a couple of save points
Stat 3) Aston Villa vs Chelsea recent meetings
Aston Villa vs Chelsea recent meetings
Total AVL 2-13 CHE
Tips: Relegation threatened Aston Villa are questioned to get something out of their double GW30+, if they are to stay in the PL for next season. With the two games (Chelsea & Sheffield) being held on home soil, FPL managers may opt to load some Villa assets- though their recent record against Chelsea weren’t encouraging at all, losing the last 5 encounters in 2-13 aggregate.(Jack Grealish 6.4m ) with 22 % ownership is the only Villa player with higher than 4% ownership & is the most likely Villan to deliver if they did., while January signing (Mbwana Samata 5.8m) may be a short-term option for this double GW only as a budget enabler to accommodate other premium assets.
Stat 4) Newcastle Last 5 League matches:
Newcastle Last 5 League matches:
Goal scored: 1
Chances created 5
Clean sheets: 3
Failure to score:4
Tips: Our final stat are related to Sheffield united opponents in one of double GW30+ (Newcastle).The Magpies have scored just a single goal, created five chances & failed to score four times in their last five PL matches, which reflects how poor their attack was prior the break, so Sheffield defensive double- up (or even triple) may be a key for more returns in GW30+, taking into consideration that only a rampant Liverpool side has conceded fewer goals than Sheffield this season.
