Fantasy Premier League returns from a short FA Cup break. We have rare midweek action coming up with some interesting fixtures. Here are our FPL gameweek 24 tips.
FPL GW 24 tips – attacking potential
We mentioned Manchester United in the GW 23 preview too and the Red Devils didn’t disappoint. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has led his team to eight consecutive wins now in all competitions. United defeated Arsenal 1-3 in FA Cup on Friday with Lukaku and Alexis back on the score sheet.
United face weak Burnley at home who got trashed 5-0 by Manchester City on Saturday. After this, it’s Leicester and Fulham away, which means that fixtures continue favourable for a few more weeks.
Paul Pogba has 5G + 5A in his last seven matches, Marcus Rashford has 5G + 2A in his last eight. These players shouldn’t disappoint you at GW 24 either.
Arsenal have also favourable fixtures coming up in the next six game weeks. At GW 24, they face weak Cardiff at home. After this comes a tough trip to Manchester City, which is followed by HUD (a), SOU (h) and BOU (h) fixtures.
Gunners have changed their formation recently to a four-man defence. When it comes to attack and midfield, the options are very clear. With Özil and Mkhitaryan out of the picture and Ramsey shooting blanks, there are just two clear choices: Aubameyang and Lacazette.
Both Auba (in the picture) and Lacazette get constantly goals and assists and there shouldn’t be any risk of rotation. They also created the only goal on Friday against Manchester United.
FPL GW 24 tips – clean sheet potential
Liverpool defence has a massive advantage against other teams in the next six gameweeks. Manchester City have tricky fixtures against Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton (a) and Bournemouth (a), which don’t promise many clean sheets. Liverpool schedule looks so much better.
The only safe choices are currently GK Alisson and LB Robertson, which should be your first-choice selections anyway. Van Dijk is not 100% and TAA is almost certainly out. Lovren should be back to replace Matip, though.
Andrew Robertson is this season’s Marcos Alonso. You just must have this guy in. One can argue that Salah is a must-have as well, but it means you still have two slots for Liverpool defenders.
Brighton’s defensive potential has never looked better. Seagulls are expected to get more clean sheets in the next six gameweeks than 15 other PL teams including Arsenal, Manchester United, Wolves, Everton etc.
The schedule is so favourable you can call it extreme: FUL, WAT (h), BUR (h), LEI, HUD (h) all coming up soon. There’s only one trip to Stamford Bridge in-between after three gameweeks.
David Button has been on goal recently, but this might change soon. Mathew Ryan’s Asian tournament is over, so he’ll return to Brighton. The best choices are solid centre-backs Shane Duffy & Lewis Dunk (in the picture). They get occasional goals as well from set-pieces.
