Fantasy Premier League – FPL Gameweek 20 Picks

Following a jam-packed double Gameweek in FPL, we have a further two Gameweeks in quick succession on the horizon.

The Gameweek deadline is 16:30 (GMT) on Tuesday, January 26, meaning we don’t have long to make our selections and finalise our picks.

Here are the fixtures for Gameweek 20.

• Newcastle vs. Leeds

• Crystal Palace vs. West Ham

• Southampton vs. Arsenal

• West Brom vs. Manchester City

• Chelsea vs. Wolves

• Burnley vs. Aston Villa

• Brighton vs. Fulham

• Manchester United vs. Sheffield United

• Everton vs. Leicester

• Tottenham vs. Liverpool

Lowly West Brom host high-flying Man City on Tuesday. It’s top against bottom on Wednesday as Man Utd host Sheff Utd, while title-chasers Tottenham and Liverpool clash on Thursday.

Let’s take a look at who’s hot, and who’s not.

Goalkeepers

Man City have kept three straight clean sheets in the Premier League, as well as seven in their last ten outings in all competitions. Unsurprisingly, Ederson tops the clean sheet charts.

Emi Martinez (Aston Villa) kept another shutout last time out, meaning Villa have now achieved nine clean sheets in 17 league matches this season.

Nick Pope (Burnley), Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester) and Bernd Leno (Arsenal) also kept clean sheets in the previous round, making them sensible picks for Gameweek 20.

Defenders

John Stones (Man City) has been central to City’s recent defensive upturn, with the centre-back netting a brace last week. The Englishman is proving to be a threat at both ends of the pitch.

Villa full-backs Matt Targett and Matty Cash have been extremely consistent performers for Dean Smith’s side, while James Justin has done a similar job for Leicester this term.

Sheff Utd are the joint-lowest scorers in the division, so defenders from Man Utd and are likely to pick up points this week.

Midfielders

The big FPL midfield news concerns Kevin De Bruyne, with the Man City star expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks through injury.

Mattheus Pereira (West Brom), James Maddison (Leicester) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) all shone in the previous round.

Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) is still the highest-scoring midfielder in the game, and he is expected to have a field day against the off-form Blades.

With Liverpool enduring a rough patch, it could be worth freeing up some transfer funds by removing pricey Reds Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Forwards

Michail Antonio (West Ham) has scored in each of his previous two outings. With Sebastian Haller joining Ajax, Antonio is now the Hammers’ main man in attack.

Harry Kane (Tottenham) is the highest-scoring forward by a considerable distance at the moment. The Spurs striker could take advantage of Liverpool’s slump on Thursday.

Callum Robinson (West Brom), Neal Maupay (Brighton), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa), Ashley Barnes (Burnley) and Edinson Cavani (Man Utd) all got on the scoresheet last time out.
