Gameweek 20 is now over so we can start looking ahead to the new round. For that reason, we bring in Fantasy Football Scout and Fantasy Football Community contributor @FPLReaction to provide us with a FPL team reveal for Gameweek 21.
As we approach any given deadline, managers will be scrambling for clarity on some of the biggest decisions in the game like transfers and captaincy. Taking a look at @FPLReaction’s FPL team reveal for Gameweek 21 could benefit other managers when making those decisions.
There isn’t much to say in regards to the goalkeepers. Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.6m) is still a very good option and with Chelsea’s key players coming back from injury, it only reinforces that. Leicester’s Danny Ward (£4.1m) makes a solid backup and Leicester may even pick up defensive form to give me an alternative option with Kepa.
Manchester City defensive coverage could be important long term and at the time of writing Manuel Akanji (£5m) looks like one of their most reliable options in terms of minutes. Kieran Trippier (£6m) continues to dispense points most matches so he is an easy long term option. Manchester United are maintaining some top form and I think at his price, Luke Shaw (£5.2m) could be a great option moving forward.
I have Hugo Bueno (£3.9m) of Wolves as a decent bench option but Everton’s Nathan Patterson (£4m) is likely to stay on the bench until I wildcard or use my bench boost.
Miguel Almiron (£5.9m) could be on the chopping block if his form continues, but his match against Crystal Palace is too appealing to sell him. Marcus Rashford (£7.1m) is in top form so regardless of his fixtures, stays in for now.
Kevin De Bruyne failed to feature at all against Tottenham, so should start in Gameweek 21. It is also worth mentioning the Belgian has a double Gameweek coming up. Gabriel Martinelli (£6.8m) has been a fantastic option for so long. However, with new singings and players returning from injury his minutes could start to reduce. There could be a switch to his teammate Bukayo Saka (£8.1m) or Martin Odegaard (£6.8m) on the cards looking ahead.
Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira (£4.6m) makes a great first substitute. He could well be a scapegoat for a future transfer if looking to fit in a fifth midfielder.
Erling Halaand (£12.2m) has been maintaining some great offensive stats with Manchester City lately so for that reason takes the armband again. Harry Kane (£11.7m) has been a very reliable asset this season and with great long term fixtures ahead, he could be one of the best options in the game.
Aleksander Mitrovic (£7.1m) has mixed fixtures moving forward and could easily make way for someone like Ivan Toney (£7.6m) at any point.
I have been monitoring double Gameweek news this week and that is why I’m yet to nail down a solid transfer plan. There are multiple routes I could go, some already mentioned, but holding out until the last hour could be key just in case.
