It’s that time of the week again where we flex our managerial muscles and prepare our teams for yet another week of thrilling Fantasy Premier League action. Liverpool host Manchester United in the headline game of the weekend which for many FPL managers will hopefully deliver a bucketload of points for their team. We’ve put together three more tips to help you freshen up your side ahead of the 11.30 am deadline on Saturday.
Don’t Wait On Ings Any Longer
We all thought Danny Ings’ scoring run would come to an end, but he simply cannot stop scoring. With five goals in his last five games and ten in his last eleven, He is now Ralph Hassenhuttl’s main man and the fourth-highest scoring striker in FPL this season. His price is only going to increase, and with favourable fixtures on the horizon, his £6.8m won’t be around for long.
Of course, we had a similar situation with Teemu Pukki earlier in the season but Ings has proven himself over a longer period of time and has the consistency needed to succeed. Southampton are getting better and better under Hassenhuttl and Ings is the main man. Get him in.
Aguero Back To Replace Aubameyang or Kane
Sergio Aguero is back. After a few weeks out of the side, he returned with a thumping hat-trick away from home which saw him cruise past Thierry Henry and become the most prolific foreign goalscorer the Premier League has ever seen. With City scoring goals for fun once more, and Aguero looking sharp on his return to the side, it would be amiss to leave him out.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubeyang banned for three games and Harry Kane out for the season, there is room to put in a premium forward. Of course, Jamie Vardy will take that place in most teams, but switching to Sergio could bring big differential points to your team.
Brighton Boast Favourable Fixtures
If you are looking to make ground on your rivals, it may be worth considering a few Brighton options. The Seagulls have seven fixtures before they play one of the traditional big six again but Graham Potter has been partial to rotating his side in recent weeks.
Mat Ryan and Lewis Dunk provide great defensive options while Neal Maupay could hit a purple patch in front of goal. If Pascal Gross and Aaron Mooy can become certain starters them they could become useful midfield options. Something worth keeping an eye on as they host Aston Villa tomorrow.
