Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 Gameweek 19: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 19 kicks off on Thursday the 26th of December at 12:30 pm UK time, when Tottenham play host to Brighton.

Gameweek 19 will end on Friday the 27th of December, with Manchester City traveling to Wolves.

So, all of your transfers for GW19 need to be done by 11:30 am UK time on Thursday.

But if you are struggling to choose who to sign and who to sell this week, here are some tips.

Three in including Southampton forward

Danny Ings (6.5)

Despite being in a relegation battle, Southampton have been in pretty decent form of late.

The Saints have won three of their last five league ties, and moved three points clear of the bottom three.

One of Southampton’s standout stars this season has been Danny Ings.

The former Liverpool man is pivotal to Southampton’s attacking threat, and his form of late has been particularly impressive.

Ings has bagged himself 11 goals in the PL already this term, including seven in his last seven outings.

The Southampton man is also now the 5th best forward on FPL, and at 6.5 is a real bargain.

Southampton are taking on Chelsea this game week, and while it may seem like a tough test, the Blues do not have the best defensive record under Frank Lampard, and are typically better away from home.

Dean Henderson (4.8)

Sheffield United are having an impressive start to life back in the Premier League.

With half the season over, the Blades currently find themselves sat in a very impressive 5th spot in the PL table.

Part of the reason for United’s success this term has been their superb defence.

Chris Wilder’s side have let in just 16 goals in 18 league fixtures this season.

Only Liverpool and Leicester have conceded fewer goals in the league, both letting in 14.

So, at just 4.8, Dean Henderson looks like a real solid option for your goalkeeper spot.

Henderson is currently the top keeper on FPL, having amassed 76 points in 2019/20.

Jamie Vardy (10.1)

The final player you may wish to sign this week is Leicester standout Jamie Vardy.

Vardy is having a sensational campaign, and currently has 22 more points than any other player on FPL.

Vardy is also the top scorer in the English top-flight, with the forward having bagged 17 goals and provided five assists in the league so far this season.

And while you may be put off signing Vardy this week as Leicester are at home to Liverpool, Vardy typically does fairly well against the bigger clubs, as they are the sides that generally push forward more, allowing the pacey Vardy to get in behind on the counter.

Vardy would even score for Leicester last game week, despite the Foxes being downed by Manchester City.

Three out including Tottenham midfielder

Heung-Min Son (10.1)

Heung-Min Son is arguably Tottenham’s best attacking threat for FPL players to own.

However, the South Korean was shown a straight red card in Spurs’ defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.

As a result, Son is set to miss Tottenham’s next three league outings.

Jose Mourinho would confirm on Monday that the north London outfit had appealed said red card.

But it has since been reported that the appeal has been rejected.

Marcus Rashford (9.1)

Marcus Rashford had been in pretty decent form earlier this month, and in November.

However, the Manchester United man’s form has dipped off slightly in recent weeks.

Rashford has failed to score in United’s last two league ties.

And with Man United taking on an in-form Newcastle this game week, it is hard to see Rashford ending his mini goal drought.

Gabriel Jesus (9.6)

After Sergio Aguero picked up an injury back in GW13 when Manchester City took on Chelsea, FPL players may have opted to replace the Argentine with his teammate, Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazilian would start the Citizens’ last five league outings, and while he scored three in those five ties, Jesus was by no means impressive.

Aguero would then make his first-team return for City this past weekend, coming on for one minute vs Leicester.

So, with Aguero edging his way back into contention for a starting spot, it may be a good time to sell Jesus.
