Game Week 19 FPL Podcast
The Game Week 19 Podcast
Sponsored by Premier Punt
With such a quick turn around from game week 18 to game week 19 it makes selecting your FPL GW19 team all the more difficult. With concerns over players who might be rested and players that have picked up slight knocks, it makes our ever growing podcast all the more important to listen to. JP joined me this week in a Sunday Special podcast to discuss the Garry of the week, the longshot, the... errmmm Delia (listen to see what I mean), the sidetips and of course answering your questions.
If you don't have time to listen right now then I have summarised the tips for you below. If you do have time to listen (and I strongly suggest you do) then you can listen using either of the players below.
Garry of the Week
In the absence of Quigliano the Garry of the week was left to JP who selected Mesut Ozil. JP stated that he was certain that the influential German playmaker would be available for selection following Arsenal's disappointing Boxing Day showing against Southampton and was certain of a big performance at home to Bournemouth.
Xabi Alonso of the Week
This week's long shot goes to the man with the same name Shane Long. 2 goals and 3 bonus points were far more than anyone would have expected against Arsenal and JP believes that Southampton's recent fortunes will now turn around with Long becoming a really good differential shout. He also likes Mane who was also prominent in the game against Arsenal.
Delia of the Week
Possibly my favourite section of the show this week due to JP's slip up, but the Delia this week goes to Juan Mata who simply is nowhere to be seen for United. To be honest, it could probably have been given to any single Man Utd player right now - but Mata showed good early season potential and has just slipped into nothingness, much like Man Utd.
JP's side tips this week go to:
Theo Walcott - Arsenal Vs. Bournemouth
Christian Benteke and/or Philippe Coutinho - Sunderland Vs. Liverpool
Ighalo - Watford Vs. Spurs
Yaya Toure - Leicester City Vs. Man City
Other questions answered during the podcast included:
Will Olivier Giroud start against Bournemouth?
Will Leicester burn out and the form dry up?
