Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 Gameweek 26: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 26 kicks off on Saturday the 8th of February at 12:30 pm UK time, when Everton play host to Crystal Palace.

Gameweek 26 will end on Monday the 17th of February, with Manchester United traveling to Chelsea.

So, all of your transfers for GW26 need to be done by 11:30 am UK time on Saturday the 8th.

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

Three in including Liverpool midfielder

Mohamed Salah (12.7)

Liverpool are taking on 20th placed Norwich City this game week.

The Reds are simply unstoppable this term, winning 24 of their previous 25 Premier League outings.

Liverpool also boast the second-best attack in the English top-flight, and the best defence.

As for Norwich, they are almost certainly going to be plying their trade in the Championship next campaign.

The Canaries have garnered just 18 points in the league this season, winning a dismal four PL outings.

Norwich also have the joint-worse defence in the Premier League, conceding a staggering 47 goals in 25 outings.

So, given the fact that a Liverpool win looks extremely likely in this tie, you should really have a Liverpool attacker in your team.

Your best option will likely be Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian currently has the most points of any player on FPL, after scoring 14 and assisting six in the league.

Sergio Aguero (12.0)

Whilst Manchester City’s title hopes look dead in the water, there is no doubt that they are still a side to be feared.

The Sky Blues have managed to score an impressive 65 goals in the league this term, more than any other side.

And with Man City at home to a seriously out of form West Ham side in GW26, signing a City forward will likely prove to be a wise choice.

One player you may consider signing is Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine is once again having an outstanding campaign, which has seen him score 16 and assist three in 19 outings.

Dean Henderson (5.1)

The final player you may wish to bring in this week is Dean Henderson.

Despite only gaining promotion to the English top-flight last season, Sheffield United are a force to be reckoned with this term.

The Blades are currently sat 6th in the Premier League, only one point off 5th place.

A huge factor in Sheffield United’s success this season has been their tight defence.

Chris Wilder’s side have let in just 23 goals in 25 PL outings. Only table-topping Liverpool boast a better defence.

As a result of their sturdy backline, Dean Henderson is currently the top goalkeeper on FPL, and at 5.1, he is certainly a solid option for your side.

Three out including Chelsea attacker

Tammy Abraham (7.7)

Both Chelsea and Tammy Abraham have not been at their best in recent weeks.

The Blues have won just one of their last five league ties, and are in danger of slipping out of the top-four.

As for Abraham, he has blanked in his last three PL clashes.

And with Chelsea at home to Manchester United this game week, it is hard to see Tammy ending his drought.

Chelsea are generally worse at home this season, whilst United usually do better against the bigger clubs.

Sebastien Haller (7.0)

At the beginning of the season, Sebastien Haller looked like a decent budget forward.

The Frenchman was pretty impressive in front of goal in the Bundesliga last term, and with the squad that West Ham had assembled, it looked like they may have been in with a shout of challenging for a European place this term.

However, both Haller and West Ham have been pretty average this season.

The Hammers are currently sat in the relegation zone, whilst Haller has found the back of the net just once in his last eight PL ties.

Daniel James (6.9)

There was a point earlier in the season when Daniel James looked a decent budget option.

The Welshman scored three times in United’s first four league games of 2019/20.

James then went on a goal drought, but he began to chip in with more assists.

However, in recent weeks, James’ goal contributions have completely dried up.

In his last five league appearances, James has not provided a single goal or assist.

As a result, you may be better served selling James and signing someone like Jack Grealish or Adama Traore.
