Since GW28 occurred in the middle of a week, sandwiched between GW27 and GW29, we, your humble podcast co-hosts, cannot review the GW28 Dream Team in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) in our usual way. Instead, we will do so right here! Here’s what you need to know about the highest scorers from the past gameweek as you prep your GW29 lineup.
Goalkeeper: Angus Gunn (SOU) - You are certainly not counting on this happening again any time soon. His 7 points came against Fulham. The Saints play at Manchester United next.
Defender: Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Andy Robertson (LIV) - You weren’t expecting all these goals and assists, but this match certainly does tilt the Reds defender debate into the direction of yes.
Defender: Fabian Schar (NEW) - This guy’s back on the list! Still not convinced that two large weeks mean that he should be transferred into anyone’s lineups, but he is certainly trying to make things interesting.
Defender: Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) - He still plays for Chelsea.
Midfielder: Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil (ARS) - Whoa now. Mkhi is no longer a one-week wonder. A 14 and a 16 in back-to-back weeks has to get your attention. Of course, he’s now entering into a North London Derby, so who knows what’s next? Ozil? He’s still a one-week wonder. I’m not expecting much from him.
Midfielder: Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) - Now this is the Gylfi we love! He’s still in wait-and-see status, though.
Midfielder: Sadio Mane (LIV) - All right, I think we have to call it. Mane is winning the Salah v. Mane Debate. Which means that you should triple captain Mo Salah this coming week.
Forward: Romelu Lukaku (MUN) - Your lone forward is Romelu Lukaku. If he is going to be another forward option, then I don’t know what to tell you. There are already so many to choose from. For now, stay away from Rom and see what happens.
More matches are already on the way! Enjoy!
