FPL Gameweek 14 Tips: Best Players to Transfer In

FPL GW14 includes the first midweek fixtures of the season, where clubs experience a quick turnaround as we enter the busy Christmas period.

These fixtures include a Merseyside derby and a clash between old rivals Manchester United and Arsenal, where Ralf Rangnick will be taking charge of his first game as United boss.

In order to navigate the festive schedule you’ll need some reliable assets, ones who’ll be less susceptible to rotation.

Best Players for FPL GW14

The players you should be bringing in are Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Romelu Lukaku.

The most transferred in players ahead of GW14 are Diogo Jota, Reece James and Jamie Vardy.

Harry Kane

  • Price: £12.3m
  • Picked by: 11%
  • Fixtures: Brentford (H), Norwich (H), Brighton (a)

Kane’s ownership has steadily increased in recent weeks, with his fixtures looking very appealing.

His non-penalty xG + xA is the highest at Spurs (4.6), taking 1.08 shots on target per 90, the most in the team.

His next two games are against Brentford and Norwich, scoring 5 times in three meetings with the Canaries.

Also, it’s confirmed that he’ll have a double gameweek at some point in the future following Sunday’s postponed match against Burnley.

Yet to hit the heights of his previous seasons, these next fixtures may get Kane firing like his old self again.

Romelu Lukaku

  • Price: £11.5m
  • Picked by: 9%
  • Fixtures: Watford (a), West Ham (a), Leeds (H)

Lukaku returned from injury against Man United at the weekend, playing 8 minutes.

Prior to that he had three goals in the league and was getting a npxG of 0.45 per 90 (9th highest in league).

His next four are very favourable opponents, including Watford, Leeds and Everton, who are all struggling in the bottom half.

Additionally, those teams are in the bottom half for goals conceded and shots conceded. So, Lukaku could profit on their leaky defending.

Heung-Min Son

  • Price: £10.4m
  • Picked by: 21%
  • Fixtures: Brentford (H), Norwich (H), Brighton (a)

Son is Spurs’ top scorer with four goals, whilst also boasting the highest npxG in the team (3.2)

The Korean has taken the most shots (26) as well as making the most key passes at the club this season (18).

He has several advantages over his teammate Kane, one being that he’s £1.9m cheaper, and another being that he has potential for clean sheet points and an extra goal point for scoring.

After having no game in GW13, Son and Kane should both be rested and fully fit to face Brentford in midweek.

Allan Saint-Maximin

  • Price: £6.8m
  • Picked by: 18%
  • Fixtures: Norwich (H), Burnley (H), Leicester (a)

Saint-Maximin has 7 attacking returns this season, scoring three and claiming four assists.

He has an xA of 2.8 (8th highest in league), supplying 44 shot-creating actions (9th most).

The Frenchman is a phenomenal dribbler, making 107 progressive carries (fourth most in league), the most into the final third (45) and 25 into the penalty area (third most).

He has very good fixtures coming up against Norwich, with the second worst defence in the league (conceding 27), and Burnley, who are conceding most shots per game (16.5).

With forward options being lacklustre this season, ASM could be worth the gamble.

Marcos Alonso

  • Price: £5.6m
  • Picked by: 10%
  • Fixtures: Watford (a), West Ham (a), Leeds (H)

With Ben Chilwell out injured until the new year, Alonso has come back on our radars.

The Spaniard has one goal and assist and excels in the wing-back role, scoring 6 times in that position under Conte in a 3-4-3 in Chelsea’s title winning season of 2016-17.

He has made 16 key passes, the second most at Chelsea, and is producing 3.53 shot-creating actions per 90.

In the absence of Chilwell, Alonso will most likely be a great investment, currently costing just £5.6m he is one of Chelsea’s cheapest starting defenders, which will only go up over the next month.

Given Chelsea are the most likely team to keep a clean sheet in GW14, along with his impressive goalscoring odds for a defender, he is arguably captain material.
