fantasy premier league GW25 – 4 transfers to consider
Firstly I’d like to say that these transfer suggestions are meant to give you a change that will increase your probability of better points. However there can never be a guarantee of points improvement. So please consider the options and the rationale but ultimately make up your own mind and please accept responsibility for your decision
LALLANA OUT SIGURDSSON IN
Firstly in terms of GW28. Sigurdsson is guaranteed a fixture in GW28. Liverpool’s home fixture to Burnley in GW28 depends on Burnley losing to Lincoln City in the FA Cup which is pretty unthinkable.
Next 3 fixtures before GW28
Liverpool next 3
Swansea next 3
Apart from the GW28 security there are a number of factors. They may have virtually the same points per game. However Siggy has the better fixture for the gameweek and the next 3. Siggy also has the better recent form and much better underlying stats. Siggy also dominates set pieces and occupies a more advanced position. He is also in a team on an upward curve compared to Liverpool. My only reservation is that Liverpool seem to perform far better in fixtures against the higher placed teams as they have more space.
ZAHA TO SNODGRASS
Snodgrass has a guaranteed fixture in GW28
Palace are out of the FA Cup. Their GW28 fixture is home to Spurs. If Spurs win their FA Cup 5th round game against Fulham away then that GW28 fixture will be postponed
Crystal Palace next 3
West Brom (A)
West Ham next 3
West Brom (H)
You would probably argue that Zaha has better fixtures apart from the GW28 situation and they have similar reasonably PPG and consistency. However Snodgrass has a better initial fixture, form and underlying stats plus has set pieces. It’s worth also noting that Snodgrass’s stats were in a losing Hull team and could improve in a better West Ham team.
ROSE (injured) TO COLEMAN
Everton have a guaranteed fixture in GW28.
If Spurs win their FA Cup 5th round game against Fulham away then they will have a bye in GW28.
Spurs next 3
Everton next 3
Rose is injured for a month or so so his transfer out is an easy one. Coleman not only has a guaranteed fixture in GW28 he also is a great attacking player often looking like a winger. No defender has scored more goals and only 3 players have more assists. Apart from the debacle against Bournemouth they looked like they’ve turned a defensive corner with 3 clean sheets in the last 5.
CLYNE TO LUIZ
Liverpool are out of the FA Cup. Their home fixture to Burnley in GW28 depends on Burnley losing to Lincoln City in the FA Cup which is pretty unthinkable.
They face Wolves away in the FA Cup 5th round. If they win they will have a bye in GW28
Liverpool next 3
Chelsea next 3
West Ham (A)
Basically if you haven’t got coverage of the Chelsea defence you really should. Given unlimited funds I would go for Alonso but Luiz is the cheapest option. Clyne is too expensive for a Liverpool defender and although has good creating chances stats only has 2 assists and 0 goals to show for it
