Gameweek 36 Best Free Hit Team

We take a look at the Gameweek 36 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 36 Fixtures

Who has the best fixtures?

Nottingham Forest, Newcastle, Brentford, Sheffield United and Everton all rank amongst the top five teams with the easiest fixtures?

Who has the worst fixtures?

Tottenham, Wolves, Bournemouth, Aston Villa and West Ham all rank amongst the bottom five teams with the toughest fixtures.

Gameweek 36 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 36:


Everton have kept the second most clean sheets in the league this season. A lot of that thanks should go to Jordan Pickford (£4.7m) who has managed back-to-back 10-hauls in his last two games.

Backing up Pickford in the unlikely event he doesn’t feature is Newcastle’ Martin Dubravka (£4.2m).


Arsenal have maintained a better defence than any other side in the league this season. So, with that in mind and a fixture against Bournemouth ahead, we could opt for the double up. Gabriel (£5.4m) has managed four goals this season whilst full-back Ben White (£6m) bagged a brace in one of his most recent matches.

Manchester City have a good opportunity to keep a clean sheet this week. The safest route into the backline in terms of minutes could be Kyle Walker (£5.3m). Walker also created two assists in one of his recent matches, showing he has some attacking potential.

Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire (£4.2m) and Everton centre-back James Tarkowski (£4.6m) sit on the bench. Both could have potential this week if needed.


Chelsea have scored two or more goals in five of their last six matches. The Blues face West Ham this week who seem to have fallen into a defensive slump again. With 20 goals already this season and penalty duty, Cole Palmer (£6.2m) remains a shoo-in.

Wolves have been poor defensively as of late which means investing in the Manchester City attack could be crucial. The standout midfield option at Manchester City remains Phil Foden (£8.3m) after managing a massive 36 points in his last two matches.

Bournemouth sit amongst the worst sides in the league for total goals conceded. Because of that and Arsenal’ statistically elite attack someone like Kai Havertz (£7.4m) could have massive potential. Bukayo Saka remains a good option but Havertz’ recent output and strikers position gives the German an edge.

Newcastle have racked up 15 goals in their last six league matches so have good scoring form going into a game against Burnley. One player who can take advantage of the poor Burnley backline is Anthony Gordon (£6.2m). Gordon has struck two double-digit hauls in his last three matches, showing top good form.

Manchester United are another side who have been scoring plenty of goals. They face Crystal Palace away this week and penalty taker Bruno Fernandes (£8.4m) is the standout option. The Portuguese midfielder has picked up two huge double-digit hauls in his two matches whilst sustaining excellent underlying attacking data.


Leading the lethal Manchester City frontline against a Wolves side who have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last eight is Erling Haaland (£14.1m). Prior to Nottingham Forest Haaland hit 18 points against Luton and Crystal Palace combined.

Doubling up on the Newcastle attack could be hugely rewarding this week. Burnley have improved recently but have also still failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 10 league matches. Penalty taker Alexander Isak (£8.2m) makes the team after seven goals in his last six games.

Jean-Philippe Mateta (£5.1m) could be a great first sub. Manchester United rank amongst the best teams in the league for shots conceded and Mateta has been in fantastic form recently.

We pick out all of the top picks for Gameweek 36 right here.
