 fantasy premier league – potential premier league lineups GW26

These are my predicted lineups for Gameweek 26. These should become more accurate the further into the season we get. Currently I seem to be getting around 90% of players correct each week. There are also a list of injured players for each club and their expected return dates.

Apologies for not getting an article out last week for this.

Key: Two players separated by a / means I’m unsure which of the two will start. A player in grey means there is a potential chance they may start instead of the player in white.

4 thoughts on “Fantasy Premier League – Potential Premier League Lineups GW26”

  1. I was hoping that Sané’s lack of game time during the double might mean he’s more rested (and therefore more likely to start) this weekend. Thoughts?

    • It’s definitely a possibility. However, the reason I’ve gone with the line up I have is because Pep recently said once again it’s B Silva and 10 others and has been singing Gundogan’s praises (alongside D Silva playing pretty well, so can’t see both being dropped) so for me it was between either De Bruyne playing in midfield with B Silva wide again or B Silva in midfield with Sane playing and personally I think De Bruyne is more likely to play after that poor performance from Sane on Wednesday. But let’s be honest, who knows with Pep. Sane could quite easily play with Sterling RW and B Silva in midfield or even dropped. Pep and Emery are the worst to predict.

  2. He wasn’t rested he was brought off because he sucked ass. If he is dropped for next game that would be a real kick in the teeth so I think pep will start him. I have both sterling and sane which is turning out to be a bum move

    • Could quite easily be the case, who knows with Pep! Sane > Son could be a good way to free up some funds and get rid of the gametime risk mate if you’re concerned about having both those two.
