FPL is back with Gameweek 30+ and the big news is that fantasy managers receive unlimited transfers.
With the wildcard recently played, it’s not great news for the team in terms of gaining an advantage in Gameweek 30+.

Ahead of Gameweek 30+, the team is ranked at 195,883 with 1,629 points. The Bench Boost and Free Hit chips are still available. Team value lies at £105.2 million, with £0.0 million in the bank.
FPL Gameweek 30+ is the only planned Double Gameweek for the season remainder. With unlimited transfers also in play, it seems like a good time to use the Bench Boost chip. The Free Hit chip cannot be used this week and will be saved for now.
For those managers with a wildcard still in the bank, it’s a good time to Bench Boost in Gameweek 30+ and then wildcard immediately after it to set up a side for the remaining eight games. We unfortunately don’t have that luxury.
Wholesale changes are unlikely for the team, which was set up with a view to finishing the season strongly. The key considerations are depth on the bench, with the fixtures coming thick and fast.
Home and away advantage is likely to be minimised since games are to be played behind closed doors. Injury prone players and those who don’t regularly play 90 minutes could hamper progress.
It’s also tricky to assess the fixtures in general: some teams and players have a lot more to play for than others. FA Cup and Champions League action is still to be played out too.
In the end, the plan is to make just five changes. Diogo Jota is omitted due to rotation fears, with a now fit Tammy Abraham given a chance ahead of kind fixtures. Ismaila Sarr takes a temporary hiatus as Jack Grealish is pursued for the double.
In defence, Charlie Taylor is replaced by Max Aarons with short-term fixtures in mind: double Burnley defence on Bench Boost didn’t seem wise considering Manchester City are the opponents.
Elsewhere, a rotation prone Tanganga is replaced with Lascelles: Newcastle have a lot to do, but decent fixtures ahead. To afford small swaps elsewhere, and additional funds up front, Matt Doherty is unfortunately downgraded to Roman Saiss.
