Fantasy Premier League tips: Transfer advice for Gameweek 31, including Liverpool and Chelsea stars

On the surface, it might not look like one of the biggest Fantasy Premier League weekends of the year but it really is.

With just five games in the English top-flight due to FA Cup fixtures, you’re going to need to carefully manage your squad.

FPL managers will be pondering their selections like Mauricio Pochettino.

You’ll need to make the right moves in the market if you’re going to have any success this weekend and for us this means using your free hit.

Managers are only allowed a maximum three players from one Premier League team, so this week we’ll be giving our top tips rather than our ins and outs.

So here at talkSPORT.com we’ve picked out the players you should be looking at, featuring some fresh faces as well as trusty old favourites.


In: Joshua King (Bournemouth) – £6.5m

Even with Callum Wilson back, King is still getting minutes for the Cherries and is likely to be the least signed of the two if you’re looking for a differential player on vital weekend of action.

In: Ayoze Perez (Newcastle United) – £6.0m

Two goals and an assist in a match-winning display against Everton will have fired up the Toon star. The Cherries have looked a little leaky in recent weeks and could allow Rafael Benitez’s side at least one goal with Perez an option, and one unlikely to be used by other managers.

In: Miguel Almiron (Newcastle United) – £6.0m

Already impressing since his move from MLS side Atlanta United, the creative midfielder grabbed his first assist against Everton and will want to be doing more.

In: Ashley Barnes (Burnley) – £5.7m

Currently in an excellent stretch of form, the Clarets ace has five goals in his last seven and could strike again as Leicester City travel to Turf Moor.

In: Harvey Barnes (Leicester City) – £5.5m

The England Under-21 ace has been a regular for the Foxes since returning from his loan spell at West Bromwich Albion. He’s made three assists and has been selected by just 0.5 per cent of managers so could potentially be a differential hit.

In: Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham United) – £4.2m

In need of a cheap defender so you can ram a host of expensive stars into your attack? The Italian is hardly reliable but against Huddersfield Town you would like the think he has a huge chance of a clean sheet.

In: Robert Snodgrass (West Ham United) – £5.0m

The Scottish star has been a surprise mainstay in the Hammers team this season and has two goals and an assist to his name. Like Ogbonna, he could profit against Huddersfield Town.

In: Joel Matip (Liverpool) – £4.9m

The 4-2 win over Burnley was the first match in five where Matip has failed to register a clean sheet. Against Fulham the Reds should ease to victory and if they do having a cheap Reds defender might be wise.

In: Pedro (Chelsea) – £6.3m

The Spaniard is in and out of the first XI but has eight goals this campaign making him a real threat even if he joins the fray from the bench.

In: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – £13.4
