The iconic musician Meat Loaf once sang ‘Two outta three ain’t’ bad’, well it was a case of ‘Three outta four ain’t bad’ for our gameweek 29 picks, as only Marko Arnautovic failed to deliver any points from our chosen four.
Let us see if we can get four out of four this week. Here are our FPL picks for gameweek 30:
Christopher Schindler (Huddersfield)
I have to admit earlier in the season Schindler was a favourite of mine. However, the Terriers terrible defensive displays in the last few months have made the German look like one to avoid.
However, it seems that the £4.6m man could now be a viable prospect, with fellow Premier League strugglers Swansea heading to the John Smiths Stadium this weekend. David Wagner’s side are favourites to win the vital game.
Surprisingly, Schindler ranks second in the FPL for tackles, blocks, clearances and interceptions, having made 54. The defender has also picked up 12 bonus points this season.
Factor in that he also has a very favourable run of games to come and a game in gameweek 31, suddenly he looks like a very good FPL asset.
Seamus Coleman (Everton)
The Everton defender is another player who features in gameweek 31. The Republic of Ireland international may seem costly at £6.4m, but his sheer attacking threat could be enough to justify his presence in your team.
Coleman has only recently returned from a long injury lay-off. However, before his injury, the former Sligo Rovers star was a player capable of producing big points when it came to goals and assists.
Formerly a winger, Coleman produced an assist for the Toffees goal in a 2-1 defeat at Burnley last time out. The Toffees defensive record may be poor, but even if the Merseysiders conceded goals, Coleman can still pop up at the other end with a goal or an assist.
The Toffees host Brighton this weekend, while in gameweek 31 Sam Allardyce’s side faces a trip to struggling Stoke. Both of those fixtures offer a chance for the marauding full-back to add to his points tally.
Leroy Sane (Manchester City)
Usually, we pick players who are not obvious choices for FPL top picks. However, it is difficult to ignore the Germany international this week. Priced at a ridiculous £8.5m, Sane is a good way into that free-scoring City attack, especially as Raheem Sterling is still a doubt for the Citizens trip to Stoke on Monday night.
The winger has a very low ownership due to just returning from injury, so he could prove a good differential this week, even if he will not have a game in gameweek 31.
Punt of the week
Steve Mounie (Huddersfield)
The Benin international has delivered on a sporadic basis this season. Last time out at home the 23-year-old scored and provided two assists against West Ham. The striker’s last four goals have all come at the John Smiths Stadium.
It means that the French striker has now scored six times and produced six assists. However, that lack of productivity may be because the striker has been rotated with Belgian striker Laurent Depoitre.
The club-record signing has now started the last three Premier League games and now seems to be first choice striker. As previously stated the Terriers have a favourable run of fixtures and a game in gameweek 31, so the striker rated at just £5.7m could prove to be a very good FPL option.
