Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 22: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 22 kicks off on Saturday the 12th of January at 12:30 pm UK time as West Ham host Arsenal.

So, all of your transfers for GW22 need to be done by 11:30 am UK time on Saturday.

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

3 in including Liverpool forward

Mohamed Salah (13.3)

After a slow start to the season, Mohamed Salah is now back at his best.

The Liverpool forward has scored 13 and assisted eight in the league this campaign for Liverpool.

This gives Salah 151 points on FPL and also makes him the top midfielder.

Liverpool face Brighton this weekend and are very likely to come away with a win.

Salah also did not start in Liverpool’s FA Cup defeat to Wolves. So, he should be well rested for Brighton.

Heung-Min Son (10.6)

Since returning from the Asia games with South Korea, Heung-Min Son has been on top form for Tottenham.

Son has now scored eight and assisted seven for Spurs in the Premier League this season.

Son also scored one and assisted one in Tottenham’s last league match vs Cardiff.

This makes Son the 8th best midfielder on FPL, only five points behind 4th, an impressive record considering he hasn’t featured in five league games this season.

Jamie Vardy (8.9)

While Vardy is not having the most impressive 2018/19 season for Leicester, he is a consistent goalscorer.

Vardy has scored seven and assisted two in the league this campaign, including the winner vs Everton in the Foxes last league outing.

Leicester are also at home to relegation-battling Southampton this week, meaning Vardy is likely to be among the goals again.

3 out including West Ham forward

Dejan Lovren (4.9)

With Joe Gomez and Joel Matip injured for Liverpool, some FPL fans may have thought about transferring in the very cheap Dejan Lovren.

This probably would have been a good move given Liverpool only had Lovren and Virgil van Dijk as fit centre-backs.

Liverpool also have the best defence in the league, letting in just 10 goals in 21 games.

Meaning it was likely Lovren would have earned you a fair few points.

However, the Croatian would be subbed off in the first half of Liverpool’s clash with Wolves and is now likely to miss this game week.

Marcos Alonso (6.8)

After 21 game weeks, Marcos Alonso is still the top defender on FPL.

However, the Spaniard’s form has been declining recently and his attacking threat has somewhat diminished.

Alonso was never the best defensively but early in the season he was earning assists for fun.

Now, the Chelsea defender has gone 10 game weeks without registering a goal or assist.

Marko Arnautovic (6.9)

When fit Marko Arnautovic has been one of West Ham’s stand out stars this season.

The Austrian has scored seven and assisted three in the league for the Hammers, including a brace in their last game vs Brighton.

Unfortunately, a Chinese club have reportedly bid for Arnautovic earlier this week.

Arnautovic also reportedly wants West Ham to accept said bid.

As a result, West Ham are probably not going to want to be starting someone who wants to leave this January.
