FPL Gameweek 33 Watchlist 2021/22
The watch list is back to identify players who’ve caught the eye based on recent performances and upcoming fixtures. Gameweek 33 possesses a unique threat with only seven teams having double gameweek and few teams are enjoying their good run of fixtures. So, here are a few suggestions (keeping eye on double gameweeks 36 and 37) for your consideration.
1. Matt Targett (Defender) – 4.7 Million
After the 5-1 disaster at Tottenham Stadium, The Magpies got them at the position with a narrow win against the league’s one of the best defenses, Wolves. Targett has bagged a total of 2 clean sheets and made 23 SCA with 1 big chance In his last eight matches.
During the above-mentioned spell, he has a non-penalty expected goals figure of 0.2 (xG) and an expected assist figure of 0.7 (xA). He also has a total of 10 touches in the opposition penalty box and a total of 17 progressive carries in that period.
Apart from the Tottenham match, Newcastle has conceded only 5 goals in 7 matches keeping 2 clean sheets and that’s incles teams like West Ham, Brighton, and Chelsea. The Upcoming fixture of Newcastle looks very decent with double gameweek 33. They will be taking on Leicester City at home followed by Crystal Palace and Norwich at home and away respectively in their next two gameweeks.
2. Heung-Min Son (Midfielder) – 11.1 Million
Hattrick hero Heung-Min Son was back to his clinical best putting away all 3 of his shots against Aston Villa despite them carrying a combined 0.51 expected goals figure. With double-figure returns in each of the last three gameweeks, he’s averaged 16 points per game outscoring Harry Kane by a total of 21 points.
Both Kane and Son have been a joy to watch each playing a direct hand in 7 goals across that spell but it’s Son’s superior goal threat that’s seeing him win out as an FPL asset. He’s been afforded 5 big chances in the last three gameweeks compared to Kane’s two, landed 7 shots on target compared to Kane’s one, and has outscored the England captain by six goals to none.
In the last five gameweeks Spurs have averaged a league-high 3.5 goals per game compared to Liverpool’s 1.8. While Spurs are ruthlessly going for goals, it’s better to bag Son or Kane sooner than later. Spurs will be hosting Brighton and Leicester at home and traveling to Brentford in their next three gameweeks.
3. Diogo Jota (Midfielder) – 8.3 Million
One man who could help soften the blow of selling Mohamed Salah is Diogo Jota who scored his 15th premier goal of the season against Manchester City. No player during the match was afforded as many as his 2 big chances while his 6 penalty box touches ranked joint best with Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden.
With goals in each of the last three gameweeks, Jota has averaged 10.5 points per game. Amongst FPL midfielders, only Heung-Min Son can better his tally of 3 big chances in that time and he trails only Wilfried Zaha and Son for expected goals with a figure of 1.78.
Liverpool has managed nine goals in the last five gameweeks with Brentford Chelsea and Tottenham Spurs notching more. But their gameweek 33 opponents Manchester United have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four matches shipping eight goals. Only Aston Villa, Watford, and Southampton have fared worse.
4. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (Midfielder) – 4.4 Million
The main reason to keep Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall on this list is his 4.4 million price tag. Managers will be preparing the team for the Bench Boost chip on gameweek 36 hence, reallocating funds is very important. In the last six matches, the English Man has netted once firing seven shots with and non-penalty expected assist figure of 0.07 (xG) per 90 and provided one assist creating 4 big chances with an expected assist figure of 0.14.
Dewsbury-Hall has an average of almost 1.0 cross delivering rate per game with an average stat of 4.16 progressive carries every match in the above-mentioned spell. Apart from this, his partial corner duty adds some extra value to his tally.
Leicester City is the only team that has three double-gameweeks therefore assets from Leicester City are inevitable. They have conceded 5 goals and kept 3 clean sheets in their last six matches. The Foxes will be facing Newcastle, Everton, and Aston Villa in their next three gameweeks.
5. Jean-Philippe Mateta (Forward) – 5.3 Million
Jean-Philippe Mateta has started five of the last six matches at number nine for Crystal Palace notching 3 goals. From gameweek 26 onwards only Rodrigo, Ivan Toney, and Harry Kane have scored more goals amongst forwards. His tally of 7 shots on target trails only Cristiano Ronaldo, Richarlison, and Harry Kane meanwhile, and only Wilfried Zaha can better his 12 shots in the box or his 2.23 expected goals figure amongst teammates.
Crystal Palace has some kind fixtures to end the season including Leeds and Watford at home and a double gameweek 37 where they travel away to Aston Villa and Everton. But without a doubt, the main appeal of Mateta is his 5.3 million price tag which can help shift funds back into defense and midfield.
