FPL Gameweek 33 tips: 3 stars you should be looking to bring in
With Liverpool once again looking to leapfrog Manchester City and reclaim their spot in pole position when they travel to St. Mary’s on Friday night, the action at the back end of the season is really starting to reach a boiling point.
It isn’t just in the Premier League where managers are looking to pick up a last-minute points haul!
With just six Gameweeks remaining in this year’s FPL, bosses across the country will be looking to end their season on a high and pick up some extra bragging points.
Although there may only be six fixtures on Gameweek 33, we have found three attacking stars you should be looking to bring in before the 19:00 deadline.
Salomon Rondon – £5.9million
Although Newcastle might be coming off the back of an expected 2-0 loss away at Arsenal on Gameweek 32, the Magpies are enjoying arguably their brightest run of form at the back end of the season.
Losing just two of their last seven Premier League outings, Rafa Benitez’s side hold a seven-point buffer over the drop zone and will feel they have secured another season of top-flight football for St. James’ Park.
A huge part of their recent revival has come thanks to the on-going form of leader goalscorer Salomon Rondon.
With nine Premier League goals to his name this season, the Venezualian international has now registered two goals and 21 points over his past three Gameweeks.
Clearly enjoying his brightest spell in England, Rondon also now has a growing tendency to save his best performances for the North East.
The 29-year-old has scored three goals in his last four appearances at home, including finding the net in their 2-1 win over Manchester City back on Gameweek 24.
With an overall FPL points haul of 117, the West Brom loanee is one of just two Newcastle players to break the 100 point barrier and is the only outfield player at St. James’ to achieve that tally.
Up against a Crystal Palace side coming off the back of a 2-0 defeat away at Tottenham in midweek, Rondon should be confident of extending his recent tally.
Losing three of their last four matches across all competitions, including crashing out of the FA Cup at the hands of Watford, Roy Hodgson’s side could be slipping back to their old ways after a brief resurge last month.
Losing two of their last three Premier League outings, the visitors on Gameweek 33 have now managed to record just a single clean sheet in their last seven matches.
More worrying for the former England boss, Palace have not recorded a clean sheet away from Selhurst Park since a 2-0 win over Wolves back on Gameweek 22.
Owned by just 8.3% of FPL bosses across the country, Rondon could be a wise investment at the back end of the campaign.
Jamie Vardy – £9million
We backed Jamie Vardy ahead of Gameweek 32 and we’re doing the same this weekend.
With Brendan Rodgers’ arrival really breathing new life into Leicester’s campaign, the Foxes’ are enjoying their brightest spell in recent memory.
Looking to mount a very surprising push for a lucrative seventh-place finish and the chance to bring Europa League football to the King Power Stadium, Gameweek 33’s visitors are on a three-match winning run.
Picking up a trio of victories over Bournemouth, Burnley, and Fulham, it will be the scintillating form of Vardy most impressing the former Celtic boss.
Finding the net against the Cherries on Gameweek 32, Leicester’s leading man is relishing life under Rodgers and has now scored five Premier League goals in as many appearances.
Already racking up a points tally of 130, more than any other player in Leicestershire, Vardy currently sits seventh in the overall FPL striking charts.
With a trip to an already relegated Huddersfield on Gameweek 33, the 32-year-old will certainly have his sights set on extending his recent points haul.
Suffering a 2-0 loss away at Crystal Palace that confirmed their spot in the Championship next season, it has been nothing short of a woeful campaign for the Terriers.
Enduing a four-match losing run and shipping nine goals, their on-going defensive issues have played a huge part in Jan Siewert’s struggles.
Holding the third worse defensive record in the Premier League, Huddersfield have now managed to record just a single clean sheet since a 0-0 draw with Cardiff back on Gameweek 22.
Finding the net in two of his last three matches on the road, there is no doubt that Vardy is quickly becoming an FPL MVP at the back end of the campaign.
It is also worth noting that when they two sides met back on Gameweek six, Vardy scored and picked up an assist in the Foxes’ 3-1 win at the King Power.
Alexandre Lacazette – £9.3million
If you’re one of the lucky FPL bosses who has some extra money in the transfer budget then Alexandre Lacazette is one man you should be looking to bring in.
Another man who is become a Fantasy Football favourite this campaign, the Frenchman has picked up 153 points this year and currently sits fifth in the overall striking charts.
Continuing his goalscoring form on Gameweek 32 and finding the net against Newcastle, Lacazette is now seen to be Unai Emery’s #1 option up top.
Already bagging 13 Premier League strikes this season, the 27-year-old has recorded a very impressive return of four goals and three assists over his past six Gameweeks.
With only striking rival Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bettering his points haul this year, FPL managers across the country have been quick to recall Lacazette to their squads ahead of Gameweek 33.
Already the second-most bought forward this week, the France international certainly seems like a wise investment for the remainder of the season.
Making the trip to Goodison Park this weekend, Lacazette has fond memories against the Toffees and will be looking to extend his eye-catching run of form.
While Everton are coming off the back of a pair of victories over Chelsea and West Ham, Saturday’s hosts have struggled with their consistency on Merseyside this season.
The Blues have won just two of their last eight matches in front of their own supporters and also suffered a 2-0 loss when they last faced the Gunners back on Gameweek six.
It is also worth noting that Arsenal’s leading man has scored in each of his previous two appearances against Marco Silva’s side.
