Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 27 Team – With the FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League behind us, we emerge from a hectic and congested period to return for gameweek 27 in the premier league and with it we see the return of the fantasy premier league as well. As the first blank gameweek of the season looms with Chelsea and Manchester City in action in the final of the Carabao Cup on Sunday, only 8 matches will be contested this weekend, seeing a slew of players with higher ownership miss out.
With the likes of standout performers in FPL this season, Hazard and Aguero missing out this week, the replacements for them are the big question ahead of the gameweek. We bring you all the players expected to amass the highest number of points, captaincy choices and all the key picks to help you bolster your rank.
With matches set to get underway early Saturday morning, the time to set your FPL teams has been pushed ahead, seeing 12:15 am as the requisite time on Saturday to make all the changes to your line-up. While the free hit chip beckoned us tantalizing for this gameweek, we have decided to give it a skip, going in with a formation of 4-3-3 and giving the captaincy to Aubameyang.

Sticking with the Liverpool man at the back of our defence, we go ahead with Alisson despite him having an away match that will determine how Liverpool’s season pans out. It can prospectively end up being a little tough encounter for them but we expect them to come out of it with a clean sheet with all their defenders having recovered from the injury that had stricken them.
Having given a bagful of points recently, Doherty’s position so high up the pitch sees him become a must have for this gameweek. Although they visit Bournemouth, a side typically tough to keep a clean sheet against, the home side are suffering injuries to key players and also are not the soundest when it comes to the defensive part of the game, something Wolverhampton will exploit.

Looking certain of getting relegated with each passing week as their aberration continues with each murky performance, Huddersfield have massive problems to address. We, however, expected them to keep a clean sheet this week when they travel to Newcastle United as they fight for survival in the premier league.
Wan Bissaka (4.6m)
A cheap option, he’s given bonus points at will by the game and as his side visit Watford, a side known for their unpredictably a clean sheet is not far from happening.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (5.2m)
Back into Liverpool’s setup, having played the full 90 minutes in the Champions League, he is not only the cheapest way into Liverpool’s defence but can easily return with attacking points given how much Liverpool’s fullbacks like to push up the pitch and send in the crosses. A match where Liverpool’s defence will need to step up massively should see them deliver flawless performance and we expect a clean sheet from them this week.
Having disappointed in recent times with abject returns, the ramifications of owning such a high-priced player can be many but Salah has been consistent enough to qualm any such fears. Liverpool’s attacks mostly go through him with him at the fulcrum of most of their moves and we expect him to get back on the scoresheet in an important match for his side.
Having progressed in the FA Cup recently, Watford looks to be in good touch and Crystal Palace at home could see them easily scoring.
A risky pick but one we’ve decided to go for given Klopp’s preference for the dependable player in big matches. He also loves bagging a goal in these pivotal matches and could very well be the lowly owned player that helps you gain up the ranks.
With Wolverhampton creating a plethora of chances every match, Jimenez is ascertained to get a bunch of goal scoring opportunities to crop up his way. Bournemouth will struggle to keep out the pressure and goals will be incoming for the tourists.
Facing Southampton at home, Arsenal will without a doubt score plentiful of goals and it’s their strikers who do the bulk of the scoring for them. With all the main players missing this week, he also gets our captaincy.
Tough match with Tottenham coming over this week but Barnes and Burnley have seen a revival in the form off late. They know they need to get results out of such matches as they try to elude the bottom 3 and we expect them to score as they look for a result.
