@FPLReaction’s team reveal for Gameweek 27
Gameweek 26 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 wildcard team reveal for Gameweek 27.
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 team reveal for Gameweek 27 could benefit other managers when making those decisions.
Brentford’s David Raya (£4.8m) has a double Gameweek so he eases his way into the starting 11 over Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.7m).
I would happily start every defender this week but I have had to make some tough decisions. Brentford’s double means Rico Henry (£4.5m) is an easy start. Brighton also have a double Gameweek so Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m) makes the back three.
It was a difficult decision between Asrenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.2m) and Kieran Trippier (£6m) but the latter starts due to his fixture and much higher expected goal involvement. Newcastle’s Sven Botman (£4.5m) also makes the bench.
Fulham have conceded more big chances than any other team in the league this season so Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka (£8.5m) could have lots of potential. Brighton have three great options in midfield and I have two of them, Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m) and Solly March (£5.1m) both start.
Marcus Rashford (£7.4m) is in a fantastic run of form and he faces a struggling Southampton in the round ahead so he is a definite starter. It was a really tough decision to leave out Gabriel Martinelli (£6.5m). I’m personally dreading his return this week.
Tottenham have full focus on the Premier League now due to their Champions League exit. Main man Harry Kane (£11.1m) has huge potential against Nottingham this week. Erling Haaland (£12.2m) makes the starting 11 especially with a fixture against a team conceding a lot of shots in the box.
Brentford have a great double Gameweek against two struggling defences in the round ahead so not only is he an easy inclusion but striker Ivan Toney (£7.8m) takes the captaincy armband.
- The bench is probably too strong this week so I am prepared to see lots of points sitting there.
- Captaincy is firmly on Ivan Toney for now but the temptation to take a risk with one of the Brighton midfielders is strong.
- I am rolling the transfer this week. As much as I am tempted to bring Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister (£5.4m), it is not feasible.
