Fantasy Premier League tips: The transfers to make in gameweek 14

first_img Out: Juan Mata (Manchester United) – £8.8m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Much is being made of United’s current style of football and it certainly doesn’t seem to be suiting Juan Mata. The Spaniard has just one goal (a penalty) and no assists in his last six league appearances. In: Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool) – £8.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Much is also being made of Liverpool’s current style of football and it certainly does seem to be suiting Philippe Coutinho. Jurgen Klopp’s arrival as manager has revitalised the Brazilian who has now scored four times in his last three matches. In: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) – £13.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Think we’ve already covered this below… GET HIM BACK! Out: Graziano Pelle (Southampton) – £8.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Graziano Pelle is actually suspended for the Saints’ trip to City this week after accumulating one yellow card too many so far this season. If you need another excuse to get rid of the Italian he’s scored just one goal and recorded no assists in his last five league appearances. It’s probably time to opt for someone in better form… Out: Joe Hart (Manchester City) – £5.7m – Click the yellow arrow above, right, for more advice – Hart was substituted with a hamstring injury after 81 minutes of Manchester City’s Champions League defeat in Turin on Wednesday and looks certain to miss this weekend’s match against Southampton. If you don’t already have suitable backup, you should probably change him. 12 Out: Bafetimbi Gomis (Swansea City) – £6.7m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Ten per cent of Fantasy Premier League teams still have Bafetimbi Gomis in them – that’s BAFEling (sorry). You’d assume most of these are people who’ve stopped playing by now, but, if not, then heads need testing! Gomis hasn’t scored since August, get rid of him! 12 In: Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – It may be controversial, but, based on current form, we have to recommend this Tottenham defender as a replacement for the injured Chelsea captain. (Who’d have thought we’d be saying that six months ago!) Alderweireld scored against West Ham last week and, if Spurs play intelligently this Sunday, he could pick up a clean sheet this weekend. 12 In: Romelu Lukaku (Everton) – £8.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Talking of players in good form, Romelu Lukaku has scored four in his last three and has every chance of continuing this impressive run given Everton’s nice set of upcoming fixtures. 12 In: Harry Kane (Tottenham) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Harry Kane’s record in London derbies is impressive, his record against Chelsea’s defence at White Hart Lane last year was impressive and pretty much everything else about him is also impressive at the moment. Can the Blues, probably without their captain, keep him quiet? We’ll see. 12 12 12 12 12 Out: John Terry (Chelsea) – £6.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Also injured in midweek was Chelsea’s captain, John Terry. He seems likely to miss the Blues’ showdown with Spurs on Sunday and, even if he does play, is far from guaranteed a clean sheet! 12 In: Tim Howard (Everton) – £5.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A fitting replacement for Hart would be Everton’s Tim Howard. The Toffees’ upcoming run of fixtures is far from sticky and should allow for some strong defensive performances and clean sheets on Merseyside in the next few weeks. 12 12 Last week we told you to hold off on Sergio Aguero… that didn’t work out too well!The Argentine was forced into an unexpected, early return against Liverpool after Wilfried Bony was ruled out with an injury and, of course, he scored. City were thumped 4-1, as we all know, but Aguero curled in a cracking goal anyway and notched up a few fantasy points following his long-term injury layoff.Now, though, we will not be making the same mistake. We know Manchester City are on the comeback trail following consecutive defeats by Liverpool and Juventus this week, and, as they face Southampton and Swansea in their next two home matches, we can expect Sergio Aguero to be on fire.Also, if Aguero’s £13.1m price tag stretches your budget just that little bit too far we have two other, slightly cheaper, strikers who might take your fancy in this week’s recommendations.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… Out: Wilfried Bony (Manchester City) – £8.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Sergio Aguero is back in the City team and so Wilfried Bony is almost certainly going to be back on the City bench… If he’s fit, that is! last_img read more
