Gameweek 32 Start and Sit
Whether you’re an obsessed EPL fan like our Draft Society team, or a casual player new to the world of Fantasy EPL, you know to start your attacking players against relegation threatened sides. We’re not going to waste your time dealing with the obvious! The goal of this article is to delve into notable players across each Fantrax position and let you know if you should be starting or sitting those particular players.
For our Gameweek 32 Start and Sit candidates, we’re going to highlight one player in detail for each section, as well as suggesting another alternate. Let us get to it!
Sergio Reguilon vs EVE, vs SOU
I have been vocal about not being overly excited about Spurs defenders for this double GW and there are two reasons for this: the risk of rotation, and their horrible form. That said, Reguilon has been getting in the ghost points of late and he always has an attacking threat in his game. You might want to think twice about starting your Spurs defenders, but in Reguilon's case you should feel safe doing so.
Rayan Ait-Nouri vs SHU
Calum Chambers vs FUL
Ozan Kabak vs LEE
Kabak has been part of a solid Liverpool CB partnership with Nat Phillips in recent weeks, so why am I recommending not starting him? Leeds' powerful attack will have a go at him and they are likely to score (remember the shootout in GW1) so I am not expecting a CS. Kabak has been playing second fiddle to Phillips in defense but a bigger issue is that he has been subbed of early in recent weeks to accommodate the shift between 433 and 4231 formations. I would not drop Kabak just yet, but there is definitely cause for concern.
Ben White vs CHE
Joachim Andersen vs ARS
Daniel Podence vs SHU
As we mentioned on the Key Pass Collective, if there ever was a time to target teams going against SHU, it is now. With Neto out, there will be a bit of a reshuffle and Podence could be the main beneficiary. I expect him to provide the attacking spark needed to come up with a big win this weekend.
Emile Smith-Rowe vs FUL
Jarrod Bowen vs NEW
Aston Villa midfield vs MCI
The Villa MIDs have been scoring okay in Grealish's absence, but not consistently amazing. However, Manchester City are notoriously difficult to get points against for midfielders. Although Pep Roulette will be in full swing, I still expect City to win with relative ease and even collect a clean sheet in the process.
James Ward-Prowse vs TOT
SHU MIDs vs ARS
Kelechi Iheanacho vs WBA
The man in form! The Nigerian has been banging in the goals like there is no tomorrow. Coupled with Tielemans, he has been one of few bright sparks in an otherwise crumbling Leicester team facing an uphill battle to hold on to their top 4 spot and Champions League qualification. Iheanacho seems to be one of those streaky players, who, when on form, can set the world alight. He is certainly on form right now and every manager needs to start him against anyone.
Fabio Silva vs SHU
Callum Wilson vs WHU
Matey Vydra vs MUN
Another in form player, the Czech forward seems to have become inspired by fellow countrymen Tomas Soucek and has been getting in on the goals of late. Burnley should avoid getting into a relegation dogfight, but this weekend is not going to be an opportunity to continue to climb. I expect United to walk over Mee and co. with effort to spare. This is when Vydra's run ends, unfortunately.
Aleksandar Mitrovic vs ARS
Ollie Watkins vs MCI
