this is my third of reports delivering weekly to all Fantasy Premier League fans. In this part I present you my 3 players choices for upcoming gameweek, which I believe can reward us with high returns.
First of them is a Captain – in my opinion the most important thing in FPL. You can do everything right, but if you fail with captain choice almost always the red arrows will appear next to your overall ranking postition. Basically this choice should and will be also my own choice for my team, but sometimes I just won’t have the best candidate in my line-up.
Second choice is a ‘secret weapon’, a player you should definitely consider to you line-up. This won’t be always big name, I’ll try to find someone who caught my eye in the past gameweeks but didn’t get reward, which means that points will come hopefully soon. This will be more long term choice rather than single gameweek ‘Ace’, someone with huge impact on his team, good numbers and decent fixtures.
Third choice is ‘niche’, a differential pick with overall ownership less than 5%. This should help you to differentiate your team form the template, also from your mini-league rivals and often turn your eye to someone who is worth having because of his points to price ratio.

This is my players selection for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 32:
- CAPTAIN – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal vs Norwich)
Let’s start with the fact that he is in my line-up, so I might be not objective. Or maybe I’m so naive? I don’t know, but I think he’ll do his job this time. As I mentioned in my wildcard article, he was very unlucky vs Southampton. He scored the bar and was denied two assists. He’s on penalties and he is still in the race for the golden boot (17 goals ex aquo with Salah and 2 behind Vardy). 2 shots on target and 1 shot off target vs Southampton, zero key passes in the official stats but as I mentioned, two was taken away by two Bednarek’s great interceptions. 3 shots on target, 2 off target and 2 blocked vs Brighton plus one key pass. I’m not trying to find an argument to back his choice with some stats, but I’m showing you that he’s active and attempts to find a goal. Norwich lost 3 goals vs Southampton in the first gameweek after restart, I watched this game and they made it very easy for The Saints… So again, although Arsenal isn’t looking good, Aubameyang hasn’t done enough to earn an armband I think he is very good option for this GW, especially for those (like me) looking for an alternative to climb in the rank.
- 2. Secret weapon – Christian Pulisic (West Ham vs Chelsea)
Christian Pulisic impressed me a lot vs Manchester City. He was undoubtly Chelsea’s best player. Very active, lively, fast and able to overtake the defence. Looks like he get back from an injury in a very good shape. His 3 shots on target, 1 goal and 4 successful dribblings are a prove. According to my algorithm Chelsea is 2nd in terms of attacking returns over next 5 gameweeks. With 5,1% overall ownership he might become a huge differential. What’s more Chelsea is still in the fight for European cups, so there is a low risk about Lampard’s rotation. He’s already in my line-up.
- 3. Niche – Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City & Liverpool) 3.8% ownership
Sergio Aguero is injured and already underwent a surgery. As we saw vs Chelsea it doesn’t mean that Gabriel Jesus is nailed now. But it means, that he’s far more nailed than he was when Sergio was fully fit. He scored 10 goals this season and added 6 assists, which is a superb result for someone who usually starts on the bench. When Aguero was injured between GW14-GW18 Jesus started in each of those games and scored 3 goals plus 1 assist!! I believe that Guardiola have to and will give him chances, because Augero isn’t getting younger, while Jesus is a very skilled young star. In return the Brazilian should be fresh and very motivated. And with so much creativity around him it’s enough he’ll find himself near the goal. Maybe this is a weak to early because how they face Liverpool, but then Manchester City fixtures are getting awesome, and his ownerships is below 4%. Manchester City striker with ownership below 4%! Wow! But even though Liverpool game will be tough, I might give him a chance now if I only had a possibility to bring him in on a free transfer. Imagine how much the whole City team desire to score and beat the fresh baked champions.
