Last week’s tips might just have given your FPL side a big points haul, with decent returns from Pablo Marí, Romain Saïss and Jesse Lingard.
Now we’re back to guide you even further, with five more shouts ahead of GW32.
Spurs might be out of form, but it’s worth remembering they play twice this Premier League gameweek.
Fantasy Football Tips – Gameweek 32
Kurt Zouma – Defender (Chelsea), 5.3 million
He might not have featured as much as he would’ve liked under Thomas Tuchel, but Zouma is slowly earning more minutes.
The big French defender scored in Chelsea’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace last weekend and has seven clean sheets to his name this season.
Tuchel’s men face Brighton on Tuesday, a side who struggle with set pieces, and Zouma could fancy adding to his five league goals against the Seagulls.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – Defender (Liverpool), 7.4 million
It seems Liverpool’s right-back is finally back in form after a difficult couple months on Merseyside.
Alexander-Arnold has two clean sheets, a goal, and an assist in his last three matches, and all the Reds have to fight for now is a strong league finish.
He will be desperate to keep up this form and force himself into the reckoning for the England Euro 2020 squad.
Heung-Min Son – Midfielder (Spurs), 9.5 million
With Spurs featuring twice in GW32, it makes complete sense to bring this man in, and he could even be worth triple captaining.
Son has 14 goals and nine assists, in what has been a quite brilliant season for the South Korean.
Everton and Southampton are his opponents this week, two sides that aren’t on the best runs of form.
Allan Saint-Maximin – Midfielder (Newcastle), 5.1 million
Newcastle would be in real trouble without their silky winger.
The Frenchman retuned from injury at the perfect time for Steve Bruce’s men, inspiring his side to a 2-1 win over Burnley with a goal and assist last time out.
He’s only 5.1 million on FPL and could cause problems on Saturday against a West Ham side that do concede goals for all their rapid improvement in 2020/21.
Kelechi Iheanacho – Forward (Leicester) 6.0 million
Harry Kane is an obvious pick for most FPL players this week, however a slightly different option up front is the in-form Iheanacho.
Leicester’s striker has seven goals in his last five league games and comes up against West Brom this week.
Brendan Rodgers needs his side to pick up some points with the battle for the top four heating up, and he will be relying on Iheanacho to continue this fine run.

Table-Topping Tips for Fantasy Premier League Managers – FAQs
How should I pick my FPL captain?
In the world of Fantasy Premier League, your captain’s pick can be the making of you, with your skipper stacking up double points each week. One outright FPL champion accrued a remarkable 24 per cent of points from his captain’s choices alone in recent seasons. It therefore pays to think about your pick very carefully.
Aside from the usual suspects (Salah, Kane, Agüero, Sterling), if you’re out for a differential, look for when ‘flat-track bullies’ can excel on the fixture list. Seek out those players who ruthlessly prey on weaker opposition, even if they occasionally go missing in more high-profile games.
When should I play my triple captain?
Watch out for those double gameweeks – but avoid triggering your triple captain chip too late in the day.
Logic suggests the games will begin to stack up for the high point-scoring players by the final few weeks of the season, and that could prove costly.
Don’t be surprised if real-life managers suddenly become your own worse enemy as they rest key players.
That could leave your inspired triple-captain strategy lying in tatters if your main man starts from the bench.
In some seasons, it’s taken until Gameweek 25 for the first double gameweek. When it finally arrives, it’s best to make the most of it, as the longer you wait, the higher the risk of your captain being a gameweek no-show.
When should I play my Fantasy Premier League wildcard?
Provided you don’t opt for the ‘rip it up, start again’ strategy after the opening few weeks of the season, there is no ‘optimum’ time to play your wildcard.
However, being bold and going early could work in your favour. Bigger clubs have free reign to play their strongest squads at the start of the season, without any major cup or European distractions currently on their radar.
Remember, the fixtures will start to pile up by midwinter.
That that could ruin your best laid-plans if your wildcard replacements are constantly being chopped and changed as managers guard against fatigue and injury.
Alternatively, the opening few weeks of the season can be misleading when it comes to judging long-term value.
Early-season form players can easily go off the boil by mid-autumn.
Many a fantasy football manager has boxed themselves in once their 6.0m summer ‘bargain buy’ starts stinking the place out in November.
For that reason, if you opt to play the long game, wait until the late autumn to make wholesale changes once form starts to level out and injuries hit hard.
Before you commit, it’s also worth scanning the fixture list to spot potential red flags.
Do the bulk of your re-tooled squad have more games away from home?
Do you have too many players from one team playing only teams in the top half of the table?
Take that moment to pause before you press to confirm your wildcard.
It could be the best tactical decision you make all season.
Remember you only have two wildcards to use per season – one before and one after Christmas.
Make sure you use them wisely.
