The FPL Gameweek 30 Free Hit chip has been activated after careful consideration.
Given the recent wildcard, the side was already well set up for the rest of the season, so it was a good way of attacking the final double gameweek of the season with the FPL Gameweek 30 Free Hit.

FPL Gameweek 29 Review
Gameweek 29 saw a double gameweek that never was and a wildcard squad that didn’t outscore it’s predecessor. The true worth of a wildcard is over a long-term period, and with strength on the bench, there’s still hope. A Vardy brace and Kevin De Bruyne’s absence resulted in a 15k red arrow.
There were some success stories, with Alex McCarthy impressing and clean sheets for both Wolves and Sheffield Untied. Mo Salah delivered at Anfield once again and Bruno Fernandes kept up his blistering form. There’s very little to say about the performance of the forward line – Aubameyang was restricted to the wing.
FPL Gameweek 30 Free Hit
The team was pretty well set up for the rest of the season, with only a few minor changes needed to set up for a potential Bench Boost in Gameweek 30. However, to attack the Double Gameweek, it was decided to relinquish the unlimited transfers, in favour of using the Free Hit chip.
The plan was to load the starting eleven up with all players who play twice, plus the first bench slot, so picking three players each from Manchester City, Arsenal, Sheffield United and Aston Villa.
Manchester City assets was the main priority and the standout is Kevin De Bruyne, who will also be captain. It’s difficult to decide on the remaining City spots, particularly with predicted rotation from Pep Guardiola. It was felt that Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero had the highest ceiling.
From Arsenal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was a given. Nicholas Pepe was chosen over other Gunners attackers to bolster the midfield, with Leno given the nod over other defensive options.
John Lundstram is the punt from Sheffield United: he did share some minutes at the turn of the year but appeared to reclaim his starting berth before the lockdown. His out of position status makes him worth the risk, and wing-backs George Baldock and Enda Stevens sit alongside him to complete an all Blades back line.
Finally, Jack Grealish was the must have selection from Aston Villa. Mbwana Samatta was selected over John McGinn as the other attacking option, with Douglas Luiz a cheap bench filler as funds ran low. The rest of the bench is there purely as enablers to make up the numbers and hopefully won’t be called upon.
The team is ranked at 194,589 with 1,629 points. The Bench Boost chip is still available. Team value lies at £105.2 million, with £0.0 million in the bank.
