Gameweek 31 Best Free Hit Team

We take a look at the Gameweek 31 best free hit team. Using the Fantasy Football Scout members area we utilise the fixture ticker and underlying stats to build the best Free Hit. We also base the best Free hit team on team and player form.

The free hit chip in FPL allows managers, within the same budget and formational limits, to select a team for one particular Gameweek. Managers can attack any given Gameweek with the free hit whether that be to utilise a good set of fixtures, in-form teams or players or a mixture of it all.

Gameweek 31 Fixtures

Who has the best fixtures?

Liverpool, Wolves, Arsenal, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth all rank amongst the top five teams with the best fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Sheffield United, Luton, Aston Villa, Everton and Manchester United all rank amongst the bottom five teams with the worst fixtures.

Gameweek 31 Best Free Hit Team

Using Plan FPL we can use one of its fantastic tools to plan transfers weeks in advance. Not just this, but we can also create team drafts to plan for using a chip. Take a look at the best free hit team for Gameweek 31:

Goalkeepers

Liverpool come up against the worst offensive side in the league next up so investing in their defence is likely to be rewarding. Because of that and his jaw-dropping price-tag, Caoimhin Kelleher (£3.8m) is a great pick between the sticks.

Backing Caoimhin Kelleher and enabling budget elsewhere is Newcastle’ Martin Dubravka (£4.2m).

Defenders

Wolves have a great away fixture next against the second worst attack in the league. However, Rayan Ait Nouri (£4.6m) offers much more than clean sheet potential. In fact, the Algerian full-back produced two goals and one assist in his last three league matches.

The lack of clean sheet potential across the board this week means managers will have to look at players with attacking potential. That is where Malo Gusto (£4.3m) comes in. Gusto has impressed this season offensively – registering five assists in the league. If confirmed to be injured then Destiny Udogie can step up from the bench.

Arsenal rank first when compared to all teams for both total clean sheets and total goals conceded. With that in mind and his superb aerial goal threat, centre-back Gabriel (£5.3m) could be one of the best defensive options this week.

No player has had more touches in the oppositions box than Destiny Udogie (£5m) this season amongst defenders. As mentioned he could step in for Gusto if his injury is confirmed. Joining Udogie on the Bench and unlikely to feature is budget enabler Chris Richards (£3.9m) of Crystal Palace.

Midfielders

Sheffield United remain the worst defence in the league. They come up against a Liverpool side maintaining some of the best attacking metrics in the league. Because of that and his performance this season Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) could be essential.

Prior to the Manchester City game Arsenal averaged around four goals scored per game in the last six league matches. The London based title contenders have a meeting with Luton who rank the worst in the league for total big chances conceded. To target the poor Hatters defence we could double in attack with standout option Bukayo Saka (£9m) and the out-of-position and in-form Kai Havertz (£7.2m). The latter has produced three double-digit hauls in his last five league games.

West Ham continue to ship a concerning amount of goals but that gives Tottenham plenty of attacking potential going into the new round. Son Heung-Min (£10.1m) has the opportunity to secure his third double-digit haul in a four-match period.

Cole Palmer (£5.8m) may have a tough-on-paper fixture against Manchester United but excluding him could be punishing. The English attacker has produced a massive eight double-digit hauls this season which reflects how explosive he can be in any given game.

Forwards

Returning amongst the top projected player points this week is Erling Haaland (£14.3m). The Norwegian has missed some gametime due to injury this season but unsurprisingly still ranks near the top for several attacking metrics.

Joining Haaland in the frontline this week is Liverpool’ Darwin Nunez (£7.5m). Only one other player in the league has had more big chances than Nunez, and with a game against Sheffield United next up, he could have massive potential.

Is there a better back-up attacker in the league at the moment than Rodrigo Muniz (£4.6m)?. The Fulham striker has returned in six of his last eight matches and collected three double-digit hauls in the same period.
