Aguero

No surprise after the hat trick vs Newcastle.  I usually talk through players in positives and negatives although there are very few negatives with Aguero.  The only one of consequence in gametime uncertainty is probably taking a bit of a rest with Jesus injured.  There’s always the threat of rotation through the number of fixtures and Pep potentially playing a false 9 but a FA Cup 4th round tie against Cardiff at the weekend should see him rested.

The positives are everywhere.  Great returns, great consistency, only 3rd to Kane and Firmino for explosiveness among forwards and great underlying stats plus has pens.

By the way Man City have 2 games before GW25 in the EFL and FA Cups so unless you’re particularly sensitive to price rises you may want to consider holding off until after them

West Brom (H)
Burnley (A)
Leicester (H)
Arsenal (A)
Chelsea (H)
Stoke (A)

Willian

A goal and an assist for the Chelsea AM and 12 FPL points in GW24.  That’s his 3rd double figure FPL point haul in 13 starts plus 11 as sub.  He’s not been exactly consistent only returning in 4 of those 13 starts but 3 of them have involved double figure point hauls.  Interestingly, these have been against Brighton, Stoke and Huddersfield which may set him in good stead for the 3 excellent fixtures ahead.

However if you do take Willian then you do so with gametime risk.  The GW24 game was the first in the last 3 that’s he started and that was with Morata and Pedro suspended which kind of gave Conte no option.

He may very well continue to play given the form in that game but you have to be willing to predict Conte.

It’s also worth remembering that Chelsea have 2 games before GW25 in the EFL Cup and the FA Cup.  Those games obviously mean injury risk but they also may provide clues to Conte’s thinking

Bournemouth (H)
Watford (A)
West Brom (H)
Man Utd (A)
Man City (A)
Crystal Palace (H)

Arnautovic

The FPL midfielder playing as a striker now has 6 goals and 4 assists in his last 8.  This is totally backed up by some very good underlying stats too.  He also seems likely to hold that position given his form and the fact that the out and out strikers in Carroll, Sakho and Chicharito either have transfer, trust issues from Moyes or injury issues.

Great fixtures

Crystal Palace (H)
Brighton (A)
Watford (H)
Liverpool (A)
Swansea (A)
Burnley (H)

Mahrez

A goal in injury time keeps the Mahrez bandwagon rolling on.  It’s 3 goals and 3 assists in his last 6.

It’s a mixed picture overall though.  His returns are good and he’s certainly a consistent returner who’s an integral part of the team.  The fixtures are good overall as well.

Probably the main questions are over his underlying stats where he is over performing to an eye watering degree.  He’s shown he can though as he did to a significant degree in Leicesters title winning season.  I’m imagining that some of the reason for the over performance is the 3 goals from way outside the box he’s scored.  I’d also question his value of returns for the price.

To get him you have to believe that his returns are sustainable or that underlying stats are drivel and it’s actual returns that count.

Everton (A)
Swansea (H)
Man City (A)
Stoke (H)
Bournemouth (H)
West Brom (A)

Firmino

Not often you see a bandwagon starting before the fixture in the gameweek has even kicked off but that’s the case with Firmino.

I’ve often referred to Firmino as a mini Kane stats wise in that he isn’t particularly consistent but when he scores only Kane scores double figure hauls at a greater rate among the forwards.  Like Kane he eats bonus for breakfast.

However unlike Kane his underlying stats are pretty poor.  Like Mahrez though he has shown an ability to over perform them.

 Huddersfield (A)
Spurs (H)
Southampton (A)
West Ham (H)
Newcastle (H)
Man Utd (A)

THE SINKING SHIPS

These are the 5 most transferred OUT players so far in the gameweek.

Lingard

Ah the ups and downs of a FPL player.  Only in GW23 he was leading the transfers in and 2 blanks later he’ s leading the transfers out.  Up to that point he had being doing everything right with 4 goals and 2 assists in the 5 games prior.

Also, up to that point he had been fairly consistent and a very good returner for the price.  However he didn’t cover himself in glory in those 2 blanks that’s for sure so away to Spurs is seen as a good exit point by a number of FPL managers.  I’m sure the impending transfer of Sanchez has also added fuel to that transfer fire

Spurs (A)
Huddersfield (H)
Newcastle (A)
Chelsea (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Liverpool (H)

Eriksen

Missed the Southampton game through illness.  That and 3 tough fixtures next are the reason I’m assuming for the exit as while his form recently hasn’t set the world alight it hasn’t been that bad with 3 goals and 4 assists in his last 9.

Whilst he’s been reasonably consistent everything else has been pretty ordinary including his underlying stats.

Man Utd (H)
Liverpool (A)
Arsenal (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Huddersfield (H)
Bournemouth (A)

Son HM

Eriksen probably did himself less harm to FPL managers by being ill than Son did by his performance.  I’d like to say abysmal but you had to actually do something to be abysmal.  Don’t get me wrong I’m a massive fan but he was truly invisible which is strange given his great recent form.

Same issue as Eriksen.  Terrible next 3 fixtures and you probably own Kane.  Add that Southampton performance and you’re really in the firing line

Man Utd (H)
Liverpool (A)
Arsenal (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Huddersfield (H)
Bournemouth (A)

Calvert Lewin

I’m not going to talk about stats with Calvert Lewin.  If you own him you were probably playing 3-5-2 and Calvert Lewin was there to warm your FPL bench and come on when needed.  That at this price has to be the first priority.

Unfortunately the transfer of Turkish International striker Cenk Tosun has put Calvert Lewin, arguably,  in 3rd spot behind Tosun and Niasse given that he wasn’t even in the squad v WBA.

Leicester (H)
Arsenal (A)
Crystal Palace (H)
Watford (A)
Burnley (A)
Brighton (H)

Sterling

Wow this I did not expect!  The guy has only once gone more than one game (and that was only for 2 games) without returning a goal or assist.  There are no negatives except the Pep rotation factor.

West Brom (H)
Burnley (A)
Leicester (H)
Arsenal (A)
Chelsea (H)
Stoke (A)

  1. Any advice on improving this team? Made a terrible tipsy switch with Danilo that needs to be rectified along with calvert lewin and lingard maybe:

    De Gea (Speroni)
    Otamendi – Jones – Kenny – Masuaku – Danilo
    Doucoure – Lingard – Son – Arnautovic – Salah
    Kane – Firminio – Calvert Lewin

    1 FT, 1.4 ITB

    a) Calvert-Lewin –> Diouf or Ayew?
    b) Lingard –> Shaqiri
    c) Otamendi –> Alonso
    d) Masuaku –> Chilwell

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
