There will likely be some headaches on Boxing Day, which is bad as the deadline to set your Fantasy Premier League rosters is 11:00 GMT.
So maybe it would be a good idea to pull out your phone as the Queen addresses the UK on Christmas Day and get your squad in order, so you can enjoy the rest of the festivities without taking the strain. behind in your league.
Let’s take a look at the top picks for the next 15 game week.
Nick Pope: A solid FPL favorite, Pope recorded some big hits against Arsenal and Aston Villa before a two-point performance against Wolves. Burnley appears to be getting a bit stricter at the back and with games against Leeds, Sheffield United and Fulham on the horizon, England cap to pick up plenty of points over the holiday season.
Alisson: A 7-0 win usually hints at total dominance on one side, but Alisson still earned a save bonus in Liverpool’s beating at Crystal Palace. The Reds don’t have a particularly good record at the back this season, but games against West Brom and Newcastle should end in a clean sheet or two.
Who is not
Mathew Ryan: Most likely see Australia international Ryan as a decent FPL rotation option, but he’s not playing at the moment. He has been picked by many managers but was recently usurped by Robert Sanchez and it is not known when he will be back in Brighton’s starting XI.
Yerry Mina: Differential horn! Everton have had two clean sheets in their last three games and Mina scored the winner when her side couldn’t stop Arsenal from scoring. That’s three good returns from the last three games. It’s Sheffield United away ahead of Manchester City at home for the Toffees, and Mina’s aerial threat makes him an option to consider.
Cesar Azpilicueta: With injuries to Reece James and Ben Chilwell, Chelsea are a bit light in the full back department. Fortunately, Azpilicueta is there to intervene. He doesn’t get too many offensive returns, but his inclusion at Christmas will help the Blues reclaim clean sheets.
Who is not
Ben Chilwell: The England international limped just ten minutes after Chelsea’s 3-0 win over West Ham and is unlikely to be involved in the coming weeks. Better to drop it for now and reinvest that money elsewhere.
Mohamed Salah: I came off the Palace bench to score twice and set one up. He already has 13 league goals this quarter and Liverpool host West Brom. Salah should make a decent run and is a great option as a captain in game week 15.
Gylfi Sigurdsson: After a slow start to the season, Sigurdsson reasserted himself in Everton’s starting XI. He has one goal and one assist in his last three games and it’s surprising the Icelandic hasn’t had more offensive returns given Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s form.
Who is not
Phil Foden: Pep Guardiola is boring. It was supposed to be Foden’s big year at City, but he’s only featured in one of their last four league games. His best comebacks came early in the season, but overall he doesn’t tick the boxes for FPL players.
Roberto Firmino: He’s been criticized lately, but Bobby is firmly back on track. Following his winner against Tottenham, Firmino scored twice and added another assist in the rout at Selhurst Park. Like Salah, expect the Brazilian to return a big blow against West Brom.
Anthony Martial: The Frenchman has taken his time getting up and running this season, but the last two games have been more than promising. He scored and assisted in Manchester United’s 3-2 win at Sheffield United and organized three more in the insane fixture with Leeds. It could be a tidy differential up front.
Who is not
Callum Wilson: Wilson has brilliantly managed to score eight goals for a Newcastle side who clearly don’t like attacking. As good as it may be, the upcoming games against Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester don’t hint at too many offensive returns.
