The big stories of Gameweek 20 in the Fantasy Premier League were the deductions from Manchester City’s fortune in the absence of Kevin De Bruyne and another loophole from Bruno Fernandes when Manchester United stalled.
The Red Devils travel to Arsenal in GW21 while Sheffield United and Chelsea greet Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool and Tottenham are on their way to West Ham and Brighton respectively.
Here are some tips to walk you through GW21.
CAPTAIN – SON HEUNG-MIN | TOTTENHAM | 9.8M.
A number of FPL managers battle Harry Kane after the Tottenham striker sustained an ankle injury in their 3-1 loss to Liverpool.
With Jamie Vardy also failing, there is no premium option to pan forward so you will likely still have plenty of cash to spare after switching to a cheaper alternative.
That said, there is an opportunity to improve your midfield and Son Heung-min may be the guy for the job. The South Korean has faded out four times in the six GW, but that shouldn’t put managers off given its explosive nature.
The Spurs attacker has seven double-digit moves this season, only Bruno Fernandes  has more. If Kane is out of action, Son will be the focus of the attack and will likely take responsibility for punishments as well.
ILKAY GUNDOGAN (5.7 m) is in the absence of De Bruyne on penalties and also seems to be getting into his midfield role well. He now has seven goals and only two gaps in the past eight GWs.
JAMES MADDISON (7.2 million) could not deliver in GW20, but still scored three goals in the last four GW. Leeds’ expansive style should suit him and give him ample opportunity to benefit from the transition.
TO GET ONE
HARVEY BARNES | LEICESTER CITY | 6.8 million
Another Leicester player who should prove to be the key to hurting Leeds on break is Harvey Barnes. He’s been in great shape lately with three goals, two assists and only one gap in the last six GWs.
ONE TO AVOID
ANTHONY MARTIAL | MANCHESTER UNITED | 8.8M.
Anthony Martial has always had a tendency to blow hot or cold and he is certainly in a cold phase right now. He’s been faded for the last four GWs and with Edinson Cavani’s shape trending there is a risk of losing his starting spot to the 33-year-old Uruguayan.
ALPHONSE AREOLA | FULHAM | 4.5M
After a Shambolic start to the season, Fulham have gradually come to terms with the demands of the Premier League and have been far better at defending lately. You’ve only conceded more than one goal once in the last eight GWs. Alphonse Areola was in great shape and according to fbref.com he has the highest expected post-shot difference in the league [+6.3]. That means he conceded six fewer goals than he should have this season, and a double-digit move in GW20 was just a reward for his efforts.
