Gameweek 22 in the Fantasy Premier League generated lots of points and entertainment. Manchester United beat Southampton 9-0, Jesse Lingard starred in his West Ham debut and Liverpool lost two games at Anfield.
The Reds host Manchester City leaders in GW23’s big game, while United and Tottenham entertain Everton and West Brom.
Elsewhere, Arsenal are on their way to Aston Villa and Chelsea to Sheffield United.
Here are some tips to guide you through GW23.
CAPTAIN – BRUNO FERNANDES | MAN UNITED | 11.4M.
Bruno Fernandes only registered one assist as his only return in the previous five GWs, which is by far his worst form. During that period, however, he still had a chance or two and eventually celebrated when United devoured a helpless Southampton side 9-0.
His penalty and two assists earned 17 points, including bonuses, making him the game’s top scorer again at 162. The Portuguese playmaker is likely to take on when Everton visit Old Trafford on Sunday.
With Liverpool and City up against each other, Fernandes’ date with the Toffees seems like the most attractive competition among the premium assets in the game.
JAMES MADDISON (7.3 m) is in his element at the moment and pulls the strings for Leicester in the attack. He has nine key passes and three assists in the last two GWs.
MICHAIL ANTONIO (6.6 m) is a man in shape and certainly West Ham’s point of attack. His two goals and three assists in the last five GWs bode well for their trip to Fulham.
TO GET ONE
OLLIE WATKINS | ASTON VILLA | 6.3 million
Another striker who hits his crotch and thus the back of the net is Ollie Watkins. Even in the loss to West Ham, he has scored three goals in the last four games. Only Harry Kane and Patrick Bamford have more shots among strikers .
ONE TO AVOID
ALEX MCCARTHY | SOUTHAMPTON | 4.6M.
An injured ego and firing awareness go hand in hand with the desperation of losing 9-0, and Alex McCarthy will feel its effects as a goalkeeper more than most. One mindset is that Southampton will proceed with the utmost caution and try to string a few goals against one another, but that’s easier said than done when three of their top four defenders are missing due to either injury or suspension.
ADAM WEBSTER | BRIGHTON | 4.4 million
Brighton, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to have a problem scoring the goals at the moment. The last game against the champions took place in the 1-0 win at Anfield. In fact, that is now four goals for Graham Potter’s side, and skipper Adam Webster has been an integral part of their defensive performances. He has started all but one game this season, faces a modest Burnley attack and shows a high figure at just 4.4m. With 13 attempts to head the ball against Lewis Dunk’s 14, he may even be down to one goal.
