Who are the best FPL Players to own for GW30? The FPL Way XV

Posted by: @FantasySilva

As we all know, FPL returns on Saturday 3rd April with a deadline to finalise your team by 11:00 am.

With that in mind, we’ve created our top picks for Gameweek 30. Our picks are always based on having 100 million in the bank and this week’s picks comes out at 99.5 million.

Chelsea vs West Brom

With a very favourable home fixture for Chelsea who are playing 19th in the league (a team who have conceded the most goals this season), we have decided to triple up on Chelsea assets with Edouard Mendy (5.2m), Marcos Alonso (5.7m) and Mason Mount (7.0m). On paper, this has got clean sheet written all over it for the home side, especially since Chelsea have managed to keep four consecutive clean sheets. We also have a good feeling about Mount who has netted two goals in the last 5 gameweeks and was on form for England.

Aston Villa vs Fulham

Our pick for this fixture is Matt Targett (5.1m). With Aston Villa keeping 14 clean sheets this season so far (joint with Chelsea), we feel there is a good chance of a clean sheet here. Although we have some decent bench fodder in our selection, we have high hopes for this pick.

Leeds vs Sheffield Utd

With Leeds playing bottom of the table at home, we’ve decided to triple up on Leeds assets. We’ve picked Stuart Dallas (5.1m), Raphinha (5.7m) and Patrick Bamford (6.7m). All three assets have had some fine form recently and we’re expecting the whites to build on their 2-1 win over Fulham. We’re feeling positive that they will continue their attacking-minded approach against the bottom side in the league and rack up some goals.

Arsenal vs Liverpool

With Diogo Jota (6.7m) netting 3 goals in his last two fixtures for Portugal on international duty, we’re expecting him to get some decent game time in this fixture. With only 4.9% ownership at the time of writing, he could well be a very nice differential for Gameweek 30.

Man Utd vs Brighton

Our selection for this game has to be none other than Bruno Fernandes (11.5m). With Brighton only managing one clean sheet in the last 5 gameweeks, we’re expecting to see some goals in this fixture and Fernandes to play a big part in the Red Devils’ attack. Although we’ve not selected him as our captain, he was a very strong contender which is why we selected him as our vice-captain.

Everton vs Crystal Palace

We feel that Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.6m) is coming back to the form which he had at the start of the season. He netted 2 goals on international duty for England in their 5-0 victory against San Marino and was rested in their last fixture against Poland. That being said, we’re expecting him to have a good game on Monday, hence why we’ve selected him in our starting XI.

Newcastle vs Spurs

We’ve gone for Harry Kane (11.6m) in this fixture. Spurs have managed to score 12 goals in their last five fixtures with Kane netting 4 goals and bagging 2 assists in those fixtures. Kane is now joint top goal scorer (with Mohamed Salah) with a whopping 17 goals this season. Following his great form on international duty, we’re expecting big things in this fixture, especially against a struggling Newcastle side. Therefore, we’ve also decided to select Kane as our captain for this gameweek.

Conclusion

It feels like it has been a long time since the last gameweek with the international break dragging on and we can’t wait to get started with GW30 now! We have a strong feeling Harry Kane will continue his great form and come out on top! We hope our selection helps you ahead of the gameweek with your managerial selections and we wish all you FPL mangers a great gameweek!
