Last week our fantasy midfielder selections really paid off. Pedro, Nacer Chadli and Gylfi Sigurdsson tallied 22 points between them. Not bad, but this week we have got better for you. Based on form and potential, here are your fantasy midfielder choices for FPL gameweek 27.
Cesc Fabregas – Chelsea
Games: 17; Goals: 3; Total FPL points: 67
Cesc Fabregas has found cracking the 5 fantasy midfielder list a bit difficult this season. The Spaniard’s 13 point haul in gameweek 26 was enough to get him into the FPL team of the week, however.
Chelsea are in the midst of a winnable set of fixtures. Fabregas is in good form, so why not make him one of your fantasy midfielder choices this week?
Pedro – Chelsea
Games: 23; Goals: 7; Total FPL points: 116
Last week, we said to get Pedro in your side. So, what happened? He only went and scored 12 points and made the FPL team of the week.
Go heavy on Chelsea players for gameweek 27 fantasy midfielder spots. The team should breeze through their next three Premier League matches, and the Blues’ top players should excel.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Swansea
Games: 26; Goals: 8; Total FPL points: 131
Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson stayed consist last weekend with his five point performance. Sure, he didn’t return the points that others did during gameweek 26.
So, why pick him as a fantasy midfielder this week? Simple, Sigurdsson’s potential for big a return this week is huge. In fact, seven of Swansea’s next eight fixtures should see them be very competitive and move away from the relegation zone.
Christian Eriksen – Tottenham
Games: 25; Goals: 5; Total FPL points: 142
Just when you count Christian Eriksen out, and remove him from your FPL team, he goes and has a fantastic weekend. Eriksen tallied 11 points in Spurs’ demolition of Stoke in gameweek 26.
This weekend Spurs play Everton, and though it will be difficult Eriksen has the potential to take the game by the scruff of the neck. History doesn’t bode well for the midfielder as he only scored two points last time against Everton. Buyer beware.
Raheem Sterling – Manchester City
Games: 23; Goals: 6; Total FPL points: 116
Raheem Sterling’s Premier League start in 2016-17 made fans believe he was back to his best. Unfortunately for Sterling, he has struggled at points this term.
That said, the winger had a great gameweek 25 – Manchester City didn’t play in gameweek 26 – as he returned 10 points. Sterling and City play Sunderland in gameweek 27, and big things should be expected.
You may even decide to select maximum players from Manchester City this week. It could and should pay off.
