Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 Gameweek 24: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 24 kicks off on Tuesday the 21st of January at 7:30 pm UK time, with five ties including Sheffield United vs Manchester City.

Gameweek 24 will end on Wednesday the 29th of January, with Liverpool traveling to West Ham.

So, all of your transfers for GW24 need to be done by 6:00 pm UK time on Tuesday.

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

Three in including Liverpool attacker

Sadio Mane (12.4)

Due to their Club World Cup commitments, Liverpool have played one less league game than the majority of the English top-flight.

However, GW24 sees Jurgen Klopp’s side finally play their game in hand.

The Reds’ first game of the week takes them to Wolves on Thursday the 23rd of January.

But Liverpool then have a second tie in this game-week, vs West Ham United on Wednesday the 29th of January.

So, with the European champions the only side playing twice this game week, you should probably have at least one Liverpool player in your FPL side.

There are a number of top stars to choose from, but your best bet will likely be Sadio Mane.

Mane is currently the 2nd best midfielder on FPL, behind only Kevin De Bruyne.

Ben Foster (4.9)

Watford’s resurgence under Nigel Pearson has been quite remarkable.

The Hornets looked all but certain to be relegated this season after a dreadful start to the campaign under Javi Gracia and Quique Sanchez Flores.

However, the no-nonsense approach of Pearson looks to be working wonders at Vicarage Road.

Watford are undefeated in their last six league outings, the latest of which saw them earn a 0-0 draw vs Tottenham.

As well as results turning around under Pearson, Watford’s defence has improved a fair bit.

In their last six PL ties, the London outfit have kept an impressive four clean sheets.

This has led to a very cheap Ben Foster becoming the top goalkeeper on FPL.

And with Watford taking on a struggling Aston Villa this game week, there is a good chance that Foster will bag another clean sheet on Tuesday.

Sergio Aguero (11.9)

While Man City’s title challenge looks dead in the water, Sergio Aguero is still firing on all cylinders for the Sky Blues.

Despite missing a fair few games due to injury this campaign, the Argentine has bagged himself 15 PL goals, and he has also provided four assists.

Aguero’s recent form has been particularly impressive, with the City standout scoring five in his last two league games.

And while City playing Sheffield United may put you off signing Aguero this week due to the Blades’ tight defence, it is worth noting that Pep Guardiola’s side beat them 2-0 at the back end of 2019.

Three out including Man United forward

Jamie Vardy (10.1)

Jamie Vardy is the top forward on FPL, so selling him may seem like a bit of an odd move.

However, both Vardy and Leicester have dipped off in recent weeks.

The Foxes have lost four of their last six PL ties, the latest of which saw Brendan Rodgers’ side beaten 2-1 by a struggling Burnley.

Vardy would miss a penalty in that tie, meaning the Englishman has now failed to score in his last four league outings.

Marcus Rashford (9.1)

Like Vardy, Rashford has scored a fair few goals this season, and is the second-best forward on FPL.

However, the Englishman picked up an injury in United’s FA Cup clash vs Wolves.

That injury then saw Rashford miss the Red Devils’ last outing vs Liverpool.

It has also been reported that Rashford is expected to be out for 2-3 months, meaning you probably need to sell the United attacker as soon as possible.

Jetro Willems (4.6)

Jetro Willems is a decent budget option at just 4.6.

Newcastle have an okay defensive record this season, and the Dutch full-back is also capable of chipping in with a goal or assist now and again.

However, Willems picked up an injury as Newcastle edged past Chelsea on Saturday.

Steve Bruce then gave a rather negative update on the defender:

“It looks a horrendous injury for Jetro, which is a big blow to us. It doesn’t look great with Paul Dummett either so in that area in particular, all of a sudden, within four or five days we’ve got a problem.

“We fear it’s his cruciate.

“We’re due a bit of luck. I’ve never known anything quite like it over the last few weeks so we’re due.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
