Here is The FPL Way Value Picks for Gameweek 34 which commences on Friday 30th April 18:30.
This is our first edition of Value Picks which we will be doing on a weekly basis from now on. Basically, we pick a side of 15 players (all on a low budget) to help you with your transfers should you need some budget players in your team. This team comes out at only 79.8 million.
Southampton v Leicester
Our first pick is no other than the man who is in top form; that is Kelechi Iheanacho (6.2m). With 4 goals and 1 assist in the last 3 Gameweeks and bagging himself 4 bonus points in these games, this was simply a no brainer!
Crystal Palace v Man City
In this fixture, we have the young star Phil Foden (6.0m). In the last two Gameweeks where he played the full 90 minutes, he has accumulated 20 points with 1 goal and 3 assists. Should Pep start the player, this could well be a very nice differential pick as well with only 7.6% ownership.
Brighton v Leeds
For Brighton, we have selected Joël Veltman (4.4m). Brighton has managed to keep two clean sheets in the last 3 Gameweeks. The clean sheets actually came from two top sides; Everton and Chelsea. Could Brighton make it 3 out of 4 clean sheets? We believe so, hence we have him in our starting XI.
For Leeds, we have the star striker Patrick Bamford (6.5m). Although his current form hasn’t been the best in recent Gameweeks, we have a feeling this guy could bounce back and it could well be in this Gameweek. For his value and the fact that he has scored 14 goals and 10 assists this season, we just had to include him in the team.
Newcastle v Arsenal
We have two picks for this game; Rob Holding (4.2m) and Bukayo Saka (5.1m). With quite a few Arsenal players out with injury, it’s very likely both of these players will start. For only 4.2 million, Holding is a very good pick, not only for this week but also next week when they face West Brom at home. The same applies with Saka, but hopefully, this man will get an attacking return as well.
Spurs v Sheffield Utd
Our only selection here is Eric Dier (4.6m). This game has a clean sheet written all over it on paper. For the low price and the fact he has become a regular starter again, we just had to select him for the team. Spurs have some very nice upcoming fixtures as well which boosts his value.
West Brom v Wolves
Our only pick here is Matheus Pereira (5.5m). After the shocking 4-0 home defeat for Wolves in GW33, we feel there will definitely be some goals in this fixture. Pereira has accumulated 4 goals and 2 assists in the last 4 Gameweeks. For that reason, if there is someone who will get some attacking returns, it will most likely be this geezer!
Burnley v West Ham
For Burnley, we have selected Chris Wood (6.3m). In the last 6 Gameweeks, Wood has scored 6 and got 3 assists. 3 of the goals came in the last fixture against Wolves. With his great form, this was an easy pick for us.
For West Ham, we have the current star of the show and one of the best loans in the Premier History; the man; Jesse Lingard (6.6m). Since joining West Ham, he has managed a point average of 8.3 points. This is a whole 1 point higher than the second-highest average by Harry Kane. Lingard has managed 5 goals and 3 assists in the last 5 Gameweeks and we’re pretty confident he will continue his great form.
Our Bench Picks
Sam Johnstone (4.5m)
Johnstone has accumulated 23 points in the last 3 Gameweeks and will be playing an inconsistent Wolves team. Following Wolves 4-0 home defeat to Burnley, this could work out in this fellas favour.
Youri Tielemans (6.4m)
Leicester is in incredible form at the moment, and as a nailed on player; we just had to include him in the team. Providing 6 goals and 3 assists so far this season, he could potentially increase this tally in the next match.
Luke Ayling (4.4m)
Leeds managed to keep a clean sheet in their last fixture against Man Utd. They also have very nice fixtures for the remainder of the season so we feel this is a very strong pick.
Vladimir Coufal (4.7m)
Coufal has provided 4 assists in the last 4 Gameweeks. With the potential of a clean sheet and adding another attacking return to his tally, this was a confident pick for us.
