Arsenal and Manchester City Dumped Out of the Champions League!

Who enjoys facing their GW38 FPL opponent?

Looking at the next FPL opponent of various players to assess whether their record is good or bad against them.


Player vs FPL opponent

Here is the data on how attacking FPL assets usually fare against their next opponents. Clearly a lot can change in the years since Striker A scored a hat-trick against Team B. However, if a player enjoys playing at a certain ground against a particular centre back, that is useful information.

Despite this, Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t included because his 2003-09 appearances were too long ago to be relevant.

Points of interest

Despite disappointing many captainers and new owners by blanking at home to Burnley, Son Heung-min joins Harry Kane in having a good record against Norwich. The South Korean star scored 13 points against the Canaries in Gameweek 15 due to a goal and assist.

With uncertainty over whether Mohamed Salah will be fully fit for the final match – especially with a Champions League final on the horizon – it’s worth noting that Sadio Mane enjoys facing Wolves at home. Two double-digit hauls from the three occasions, with three goals and an assist.

Diogo Jota doesn’t particularly have a record against Wolves, as it’s his former club. Same situation for Jack Grealish versus Aston Villa and Chris Wood versus Burnley.

Perhaps the Newcastle man doesn’t even play, now that Callum Wilson is back. He scored the only goal against the Clarets in Gameweek 15 – Newcastle’s first win of the season.

Another success that week was Richarlison against Arsenal. It’s a surprise to see that Jamie Vardy has never netted at home against Southampton. His five goals from 14 games have arrived in two away trips – including the 9-0 win of 2019/20.

Finally, Michail Antonio has not scored a league goal against Brighton from eight attempts.
