FPL Game Week 21 – The Last Word
Game Week 21 – The Last Word
Sponsored by Premier Punt
It has been a long time since we started looking at game week 21 so it is well worth having a last look at the potential big points hitters for this midweek set of Fantasy Premier League fixtures. With lingering questions over who to captain in gameweek 21, fitness concerns and queries over form, it is quite apt to assess the upcoming FPL action once again.
Before you read the rest of this article I would strongly suggest you read the rest of our GW21 tips which are listed here. If you are a member, just be sure to login before you head to that page to ensure the members only articles are also displayed.
Top picks for Game Week 21
A thrilling 2-2 draw was a great precursor to the Premier League fixture between Spurs and Leicester this week and although both teams rested a lot of their key players it was a good indicator for a good game at the Lane this week. Jamie Vardy will be missing for Leicester following minor surgery, but Harry Kane looks set to play after coming on off the bench to rescue the tie from the penalty spot on Sunday.
Harry Kane is the top pick from this game and is one to be on this weekend.
Liverpool were hardly inspiring when scraping a 2-2 draw on Friday night in their FA Cup tie with Exeter and the visit of Arsenal couldn’t come at a worse time in terms of injuries and lack of form for the Anfield side.
Coutinho and the majority of Liverpool’s central defence is a big injury blow for Liverpool and Arsenal are well poised to expose any mistakes that Liverpool make. Olivier Giroud and any Arsenal defender are the ones to be on here.
The question of whether to stick with Odion Ighalo is a pertinent one, but with the injured Jamie Vardy making way in most teams it is worth sticking with the Watford man. Taking on a stuttering Southampton side, he could well be on the score sheet again this week – so don’t drop him just yet.
Captain Pick for Game Week 21
This is a question that will probably go right to the wire this week as only 6 teams are playing on Tuesday meaning we might not hear all of the reliable team/injury news in time to make a fully informed captain decision.
This means that we will want to opt for a fully nailed on captain choice for GW21. We looked at the likes of Diego Costa, Harry Kane and Olivier Giroud as our captain picks earlier in the week and there is no real reason to divert away from those thoughts. Diego Costa is probably the strongest pick on current form and the fixture (as Chelsea are at home against West Bromwich Albion) but it is more likely that you will have Harry Kane in your teams – on that basis, he gets the pick this week. If you do have Costa in your team then I would suggest you back the Spaniard in his current hot-streak of form.
