Players, You Cannot Miss for GW 18
Spurs Captain and central forward Harry Kane is a must-have on your squad this FPL season. He already has 10 Goals and 11 Assists to his name.
Likewise Spurs forward Son Heung-Min is another player you cannot afford to leave off your starting XI. He also has incredible 12 Goals to his name and has provided 5 Assists as of right now this campaign. Both Harry Kane and Son have beautifully combined to produce fantastic goals for their club this season and it’s only fair to assume that they will continue to do so for the upcoming games as well given the Top-Form.
Arsenal have been flying for the past couple of games although they had a very bad start to their campaign. Bukayo Saka is a player you probably must have at least for the GW 18. Arsenal host Crystal Palace at home and given their form for the past few matches, you certainly don’t want to write-off the Gunners for a victory at Emirates. Saka is currently priced only at 5.3m and given the form he has been at, he is the first one to choose for your FPL squad from the Gunners Team. Tierney is rocking at the Arsenal backline and is one of the great choices for FPL owners.
Likewise, Manchester City host Brighton at Etihad, and you ought to have either De Bruyne or Sterling on your squad. These are the players at the form for the Pep’s team and we specifically chose these 2 players from city for you because, unlike other players, at the very least these 2 have high chances of starting the game. Joao Cancelo is also an incredible pick for your defensive backline. He is priced 5.7m at the transfer market.
Burnley host Manchester United who are absolutely rocking right now in the league and could possibly go top of the table if they win this game. Bruno Fernandes has been the greatest asset for the Red-devils this season and he is the must-have player on your squad not only for the GW 18 but for many upcoming games as well. And for this GW, he probably is one of the strong contenders for the captain’s Arm-band. You might also want to have Aaron Wan-Bissaka in your defensive line as he is a bargain for just 5.3m. You might also want David De Gea between the sticks. He has shown incredible form for the past few game weeks now.
Newcastle visit Sheffield United who have already conceded 29 goals this season. So Callum Wilson, despite not having scored for 3 Gameweeks is a top choice for the upcoming week as he is a bargain for 6.5m
