Gameweek 22 saw a record-breaking number of goals being scored. This week’s analysis dives deep into the performances, helping you make informed decisions for your FPL team.
Richarlison: A Must-have or a Miss?
One of the standout performers of the week was Richarlison. The Tottenham Hotspur player has been in scintillating form, scoring nine goals in his last eight league games. This surge in performance can be attributed to his positional switch up front.
Despite a blank in Gameweek 26, his underlying numbers and upcoming fixtures make him an interesting prospect. However, whether to bring him in largely depends on your team’s current setup.
The Estupinan Dilemma
Pervis Estupinan, once a regular in the Brighton starting XI, has seen his position come under threat. He was benched during their 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace in Gameweek 23.
With Brighton’s upcoming fixtures being favorable, it might be worth holding onto Estupinan for now, unless he is benched against Spurs in the next game.
Newcastle United: A Puzzle to Solve
Newcastle United’s 4-4 draw against Luton was the game of the week. While Kieran Trippier scored a goal and an assist, Newcastle’s defensive vulnerability raised eyebrows. However, with their long-term fixtures looking decent, it might be worth holding onto their defenders for now.
Luton’s Assets Shine
Luton’s recent form has been impressive, with three wins and two draws in their last six games. Their players, especially Elijah Adebayo and Alfie Doughty, have been performing exceptionally well. With Sheffield United up next and a double gameweek after that, investing in Luton could be a worthwhile move.
Liverpool’s Big Guns: Cause for Worry?
Liverpool’s key players, Darwin Nunez and Trent Alexander-Arnold, have been causing a bit of concern among FPL managers. Nunez, while recovering from a knock, managed to get some game time. Alexander-Arnold, on the other hand, played for 57 minutes, suggesting he hasn’t fully recovered yet. Keeping an eye on Klopp’s team setup in the coming weeks would be beneficial.
