Best picks from Norwich for Double Gameweek 36

Norwich play twice in Double Gameweek 36. We take a look at their underlying stats and investigate the ownership percentages for the Norwich players. Ahead of matches against Leicester and West Ham, we assess the best investment options from Norwich.

Norwich were relegated from the Premier League as a result of the outcome of the Gameweek 35 fixtures. On paper Norwich’s Gameweek 36 fixtures look tough with games against Leicester and West Ham. However, ahead of the weekend both of the Norwich opponents will be in European action. This may impact the teams that they are able to feed as well as their motivation.

Underlying Stats

The attack

Norwich have scored 22 goals this season, the lowest tally in the league.

However, forward Teemu Pukki has been in good form in recent weeks. Pukki has returned 45 points since Gameweek 28. This is an average of 5.6 points per match.

Only four forwards have scored more goals than Pukki’s four since Gameweek 28.

Likewise, only three forwards have more attacking returns than Pukki in the same period.

The defence

Norwich have kept just six clean sheets so far this season. Of their defenders only two defenders have been on the pitch for all of those clean sheets.

Whilst the Norwich defenders don’t offer managers a lot of potential for either defensive or attacking returns they are good enablers. At just £3.9m Brandon Williams can allow FPL managers to save some budget which can be reinvested in the attacking players.

Ownership ahead of Double Gameweek 36

Only Pukki is owned by more than 10% of managers in the top 10k. Indeed none of the other Norwich assets are owned by over 1% of the game.

Therefore owning any of the Norwich assets will be a good differential. Even Pukki could bring good green arrows if he returns in the Double Gameweek fixtures.

Overall

Now that Norwich are relegated from the league this may allow them to play with more freedom than they have previously. Pukki is the best pick from the Norwich City team, however if managers want to free up some budget then Williams could be a good bench pick for the run-in.

However, Drafthound suggest that managers should hold the Norwich talisman.
