Is it too late to board the Paul Pogba bandwagon and captain him away to Newcastle?
It’s Paul Pogba who dominates the community thoughts heading into the Gameweek 21 tips. FPL Swot summarises his returns under Ole Gunnar Solskjær. Will he maintain this rich vein of form?

As the New Year approaches, Tim Bayer uses Tableau Software to analyse the teams with the best upcoming fixtures. Manchester United are high up the table, with Chelsea and Everton also looking like good options.
Over half way through the season and we're about to going into 2019. Who's got the best first five fixtures of the year?

With managers scrambling for Pogba, those who selected Rashford will be feeling nervous ahead of Gameweek 21. He’s picked up a slight knock and could be at risk of losing his place with Lukaku coming back into the picture. Stick or twist?
Can’t see Rashford starting v Newcastle…
• 3rd game in 7 days
• Taken off with groin strain
• Only 3 days until next game
• Lukaku with a goal in cameo today#FPL

Mo Salah’s consistent double-digit hauls may have been overshadowed by Pogba, but he’s a fantastic option going forward. Many managers are jumping on board a week early despite a tricky fixture, and the statistics support this move.
Salah’s xA per 90 mins is up by 60% on last season. #NonTrivial

FPL Prince has also shared his top captaincy picks for Gameweek 21, with Aubameyang the favoured option despite a disappointing performance last weekend. Is he a rotation risk though?
Best captain this week:
1️⃣ Aubameyang: Arsenal will look for revenge after the heavy defeat to Liverpool
2️⃣ Hazard: Faces a tired Southampton side with no Hojberg
3️⃣ Kane: Spurs will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Wolves and Cardiff have shipped a lot of goals

Hopping on some differentials could give you the edge over your rivals and gain ground. With an excellent track record, check out FPL Porte’s thread for those players to consider for the month of January.
If you followed my December differentials, you’d of seen they scored 295 points over 7 game weeks. Top performers were Son, Digne and Gundogen.
Here follows my Not so Jammy January squad
Every player must be under 15%
