The 24/25 Premier League Fixtures are OUT NOW!

Which FPL players could change position for 2024/25?

Using information from last season, these are the FPL players most likely to see a position change for 2024/25.

As always, the upcoming summer launch will see a small number of individuals from last season be reclassified.

Let’s take an educated guess on who is about to switch position.

Kai Havertz (from midfielder to forward)

Firstly, it feels fairly certain that the Arsenal attacker will reverse last year’s move from forward to midfielder. As the season progressed, he became the Gunners’ lead striker as they pushed Man City all the way.

In the final 14 Gameweeks between 25 and 38, only one player scored more points than Havertz. He accumulated nine goals, eight assists and six double-digit hauls throughout that period.

Therefore he ended 2023/24 as the second-best midfielder for big chances (24). Yet managers won’t be receiving such a gift this time.

Richarlison (from midfielder to forward)

FPL position change

Similarly, Richarlison was also switched to an FPL midfielder. But, after a slow start to the season, a spell of nine goals in eight matches between Gameweeks 16 and 23 firmly established him as Spurs’ main centre-forward.

A couple of knee and hamstring issues hindered the Brazilian’s final months but he still ended with a respectable 11 goals and four assists.

Harry Kane’s departure left the North London side without any recognisable FPL forward but that should change this time. Opening fixtures versus Leicester (a) and Everton (h) boost his credentials further.

Timo Werner (from forward to midfielder)

FPL position change

Sticking with Spurs, the half-season loan of Werner has been extended for the whole of this upcoming campaign. Used almost exclusively on the left wing, he brought in two goals and four assists from 13 appearances.

He’ll provide ideal depth for their return to European football, although it’ll stop him from being the nailed-on starter required by FPL managers.

That’s because Son is expected to remain first choice on the left, which probably stops the South Korean being changed to an in-game forward.

Diogo Jota (from midfielder to forward)

Elsewhere, Liverpool are about to start their life after Jurgen Klopp. They begin with an attractive run of fixtures, it just remains to be seen what Arne Slot’s favoured frontline will be.

Jota and Cody Gakpo swapped positions last time, with the Portuguese international moving into midfield. Upon assessment of 2023/24 positioning, Gakpo should still be a forward but perhaps both will.

That’s because many Jota outings occurred up front, grabbing 10 league goals and seven assists despite starting just 14 times. By delivering a return every 68.8 minutes, he edged out Cole Palmer and Erling Haaland to have the second-best minutes-per-point rate of those named in at least three line-ups.

Antoine Semenyo (from forward to midfielder)

FPL position change

The later goals of Rodrigo Muniz still weren’t enough to stop Semenyo from being the best forward who started at £4.5m.

However, the eight goals and four assists tended to come from Bournemouth’s right wing while Dominic Solanke led the line.

So the 24-year-old should become an FPL midfielder, potentially adding to his appeal.
