Triple Spurs should be non-negotiable in my eyes.

There are AT LEAST two very good options, Son aside.

Tuck in…🧵

#FPL Image Given the enormous quantity of information that needs analysing, this thread will follow a slightly different format to usual.

I will walk through the six doubling teams, as if to build the best Free Hit.

The analysis will contain everything you need. The only thing left to do on your end, is to extrapolate it to best assist YOUR team.

Regardless if you are Free Hitting or not.

Naturally, many of the sides are coming up against each other.

To save myself repeating what is said prior, I will include a certain match at the first available opportunity.

For example, if you need to reference Wolves’ second game against Bournemouth, that will be found in the Cherries section after, and not in the Wolves one.

There will be a section for SGW players in the end, and how to assess them in comparison to DGW players.

The likes of Haaland vs Cunha, Foden vs Breton Diaz, etc. will be analysed.

#FPL Image 💎 Liverpool Assets - Best for DGW?

Something that isn’t being given QUITE as much consideration as it should be.

At a minimum, the consideration lacks a sense of “depth”.

The initial impulse leads you down a route of 3x Liverpool assets is essential for the DGW, and whilst that may be true, WHICH assets and is a triple up even necessary/optimal?

Assuming Mohammed Salah as a lock, we must decipher which two (if two), are the best to partner him.

However, as we have learnt, xMins is a variable to be treated with the utmost respect.

And, how many of the popular Liverpool assets have good xMins?

#FPL Image 💎 Captaincy - Get it right

This conundrum right here; this is content at its’ peak for me.

As I shall show you in this deep dive, captaincy is EXTREMELY difficult this time around.

It may appear simple, but don’t let Palmer’s hat-trick, Salah’s 1 pointer or Haaland’s no…

I’ve only included those up to, and including GW33, because both are fairly undesirable to hold in DGW34 (dependent on your individual strategy).

Salah is at a bare minimum, a good option.

💎 Best Free Hit Team

(Includes Captaincy)

Naturally, there will be contrasting opinions across the board when it comes to optimising a team of 11 players from a set of many.

So, my only intention is to present to you what I think is the best, with some arguments against some of the more popular picks, and go from there.

#FPL Image 💎 Luton assets - Overall assessment

Let’s take their DGW earlier in the season and learn from it. They too, just like Bournemouth assets, are priced quite cheaply, thus are very accessible to most managers.

So naturally given they had a DGW, many piled in on them.

I thought rather than talking pure FPL strategy, I’d offer some analysis into how I actually think the games will pan out.

In the hope it potentially gives you an edge with regards to your decision making.

And, it shows you that having one less DGW asset than your friend, really isn’t the end of the world.

The analysis of Alvarez can be found later in the thread, not a wonderful matchup for him, albeit SHU’s competence against the bigger sides purely due to their system is slightly overstated in my opinion.

They still concede numerous chances.

Decent chances.

#FPL Image Last week you were bombarded with the idea of “Liverpool are going to maul Manchester Utd”.

When presented with that idea, how much of that analysis surpassed what was essentially:

“Liverpool = good, Manchester Utd = bad. 7-0 last year, scary atmosphere, so that = Salah haul”
