FANTASY FORECAST 2019/20: FPL Gameweek 7

September 29, 2019

| The Hype Train |

 

Ahead of each Gameweek in the Fantasy Premier League, The Hype Train's three front-men, Robert Austin, Sam Austin and Phil Jones, duel for FPL supremacy in predicting Premier League scores, as well as going head to head in picking a Scout Picks squad for each round of games. In addition, we provide general insight that we believe might be relevant for FPL players, such as our personal captaincy picks, differentials for the week, and more. Welcome to the Forecast. All aboard.

 

Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 7 Deadline

For the 2019/20 Premier League season, the FPL deadline will be one hour before the commencement of the week's first game. Our website provides a real-world countdown timer for the the upcoming Gameweek, whilst you can read our latest Fantasy articles from the season on our 2019/20 FPL weekly hype sub-section.

 

 

How does our Forecasting work?

For three years we invited guests from the FPL Community to tackle us with picks for the upcoming Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League. We'll be taking a break from inviting guests onto this article for a year, and have introduced a new feature, Fantasy 5's, which we'll be asking weekly guests their top pick in each position ahead of each Gameweek.

 

For the sake of respecting the rules of the Forecast, we have provided an example of what we're sending out to interested parties that will feature throughout the season.

  • Premier League Fixture Prediction: As pundits, we are testing our football acumen with PL predictions and will be providing regular updated tables and stats in each edition of the FPL Forecast. A perfect score is worth 3 points whilst a correct result is worth 1 point.

  • FPL Gameweek Forecasting: Answering the regular questions that come up every single week in the Fantasy Premier League community that helps with identifying captaincy picks, transfers, attacking options, clean sheet potential, teams to look our for and avoid, players to consider for the Draft game, the wildcard differential players, as well as general analysis and comments.

  • Scout Picks: Picking a squad of 15 for a single Gameweek, without any budget, using the rules of the FPL - formations, captains and vice captains, and the player limits of 3 per club (chips will not be feature of these weekly picks)

  • Each team must pick a Captain, labelled as (c) and a Vice Captain listed as (vc).

 

 

Fixture Prediction: Gameweek 7

Sheffield United 0-2 Liverpool

Aston Villa 0-0 Burnley

Bournemouth 2-2 West Ham

Chelsea 4-1 Brighton

Crystal Palace 1-2 Norwich

Spurs 4-0 Southampton

Wolves 3-1 Watford

Everton 0-2 Man City

Leicester 1-0 Newcastle

Man United 1-2 Arsenal

 

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 7

 

Top FPL transfer targets for the weekend:

Nick Pope (BUR, GK, £4.6mil, 14.2% ownership)

Ricardo Pereira (LEI, DEF, £6.0mil, 6.0% ownership)

Hueng-Min Son (TOT, MID, £9.7mil, 8.8% ownership)

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS, FWD, £11.0mil, 23.7% ownership)

 

Who are the teams to look out for and avoid?:

Chelsea (Watch): The Blues are scoring plenty of goals this season at the expense of their defence, but that is okay for FPL managers with two breakout English players rising their stock in the league: Abraham & Mount. Brighton have been all over the place, and VAR isn’t helping them, but this fixture will be too much for the Seagulls

 

Liverpool (Watch): Six straight league wins in a row from the European Champions is a great start for Klopp’s men who now be looking at the league with salivation as City’s defence gets even more threadbare. I don’t think Sheffield’s defensive stubbornness will be enough to keep out Salah, Mane, and Firmino….who were all benched in Liverpool’s League Cup win over MK Dons.

 

Aston Villa & Burnley (Both Watch & Avoid): This game has 0-0 written all over it with two keepers that have played for Burnley. Heaton is a monster in goal, as is Pope.

 

Bournemouth (Avoid): In the Premier League the Hammers have kept three straight clean sheets. The team that lost 4-0 in the League Cup was their ‘B’ team. I can see West Ham turning up to the South Coast with a point to prove.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C) – Tammy Abraham (CHE): The Englishman has scored 7 goals in his last 4 league appearances. We can write-off the loss to Liverpool who are the team to beat this season, and it should be business as usual for Abraham against a struggling Brighton at the Bridge.

 

(VC) – Mohamad Salah (LIV): Salah has started this season consistently, and if there is anyone you should trust as vice-captain then it is the Egyptian King. Liverpool travel to Sheffield United and you would fancy them to make it seven wins out of seven.

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 7

 

Top FPL transfer targets for the weekend:

I'm playing my Wildcard this week and have focused on getting in Aubameyang, KDB, Firmino, Abraham, Pope and Tomori - so this is probably a good starting point for this week.

 

I'd love to pick James Maddison too as a long-term option, but being ruled out this weekend is changing my midfield plans.

 

Who are the teams to look out for and avoid?:

Newcastle (Avoid): Newcastle's luck has run out and despite winning successive games at Leicester, I'll be surprised if we don't get beat by a couple of goals. Since Perez moved to Leicester we won't score their now and Brendan Rodgers has really helped develop their squad in the last year.

 

Everton (Avoid): Just not reliable at all, with Digne proving to be noting more than a falsehood in the early season. Playing Cirty means it is the perfect time to purge any Everton player from your team.

 

Arsenal (Watch) / Man United (Avoid): Monday's encounter should be a good game and I expect Auba and Pepe to have good outings against a United side that couldn't play their way out of a soggy paper bag away at West Ham last weekend.

 

Liverpool (Watch): Don't be put off by the early kick-off, Liverpool should walk this game at Sheffield.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C) – Mohamed Salah (LIV): I've captained Sterling for 3 straight weeks and in that time Salah has picked up more captaincy points for me. Might as well as stick with what I know and bank on the Egyptian.

 

(VC) – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS): 6 returns from 6 with a great run. There's no stopping the Auba train ahead of a great run of fixtures.
