This is only a small blank game-week, just one fixture missing, but it feels significant with Man City assets absent, even with their poor run of form recently. This is probably a good time for a break — Haaland and De Bruyne look to return imminently! Brentford is the jilted side left idle by the postponement.
We’re in the midst of the packed festive period with this blank game-week followed by the standard Boxing Day fixtures on the 26th (Tuesday — Don’t miss it!).
Bailey and Solanke come in for Hwang and Evans, respectively. Captaincy goes to Tottenham’s Son, but I’m tempted to move to one of the Villa players who look like hot prospects against a struggling Sheffield United side. No free transfers, but Wildcard still available.
When are you planning to use your 1st Wildcard in FPL? (if you haven’t already). Are you impacted heavily by the blank game-week? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
