Fantasy premier league GW30 review – the best underlying stats from GW30


,

Here’s our fantasy premier league GW30 review where we look for the players and teams with the best underlying stats from GW30 only. It’s an easy way to check on how one of your FPL team performed in the gameweek. 

Fantasy premier league GW30 review – the best underlying stats from GW30





I’ve had to simplify the article as it was taking far too much time and didn’t read well particularly on a phone.  So I’ve changed it so it’s simpler and more easily translatable from the fantastic free stats site understat.com

Remember,  the stats are just for GW30 and not cumulative.

The article is in 2 parts. We’ve started with the attacking stats for the players divided by position. Effectively we’ve taken their xG stats and their xA stats and converted them into FPL points and then ranked them. We don’t show the points but that’s how they’re ranked. It’s far more useful than just ranking them by xG and xA separately.

The 2nd part is just the ranking of team defensive and attacking performances which is the rank by xG and xG conceded.

The stats are all from the excellent free site understat.com.

I’m intending to put together a  google spreadsheet where I will endeavour to rank the top 20 in each position week by week but not ready yet.

Notes of interest from the GW30 lineups

Where a player is playing in a more advanced position that his FPL classification I’ve put this in italics. Most players will be in the schedules above.

Just because a player is mentioned in a position doesn’t mean that will continue or that he will even start in subsequent gameweeks. It’s an observation for this gameweek

Palace Def Schlupp continues to play LM in a 4-3-3.  Zaha continues to play LW

Mids Redmond and Ward Prowse play behind the striker in 3-4-2-1

Mid Moura plays as Kane’s strike partner in 4-3-1-2 and Alli plays behind the strike pair.  Eriksen plays on the left in the 3.

Mids Barnes and Demari Gray flank Vardy in 4-3-3.  Maddison plays LM

Def Chambers plays RM in 4-3-3. Sessegnon and Babel flank Mitrovic

£4.6m Mid Camarasa plays CAM in 4-2-3-1.

Chicharito plays CF in 4-1-4-1.  Def Rice plays CDM

Newcastle play 3-4-3 with Mid Almiron and Fwd Perez flanking Rondon

£3.9m Def Stankovic plays CDM for Huddersfield

Wilson and King play as a strike pair in 4-4-2 for Bournemouth

Sterling and Mahrez flank Aguero in 4-3-3.  The Silva’s play in the Midfield 3

Liverpool go back to the conventional 3 with Firmino CF flanked by Mane and Salah

Mid Jota plays as  Jimenez’s strike partner in 3-5-2

Aubameyang and Lacazette play as strike partners with Ozil CAM in 3-4-1-2

  1. Geek, I am free hitting. Ive seen some commenters wanting to see fh team so heres mine.
    Fab (boruc)
    Luiz TAA Rice (tarkowski mee)
    Sala (c) mane haza fraser (mcneil)
    Wilson higuain arnautovic
    In essence, we expect liverpool to pump the relegation bound cottagers. The sala is due as he has played well with chances without scoring. Makes sense that West ham will beat the toothless terriers to nil at home and gut says arnie starts to get his confidence up against a weaker side. I expect eddie to attack the maggies so as mentioned by the Ming, Fraser looks good and Wilson looks primed after the injury lay off. King seems he is the assist to the assister man when wilson plays as he holds up and laysoff and the layoffee will give wilson a chance. Burnley leister is the hardest to predict cos of the rodgers factor of attack minded possession vs dyche big player physicality.
