FPL Gameweek 32 Preview – Tips, Fixtures, Stats – 20/21

Gameweek 32 is just around the corner after a Premier League season without fans continued to give us more twists and turns.

Top of the league, Man City, hit a setback in their charge for the title and Newcastle pulled out a vital win in their fight for survival.

As always, we look at each Premier League teams’ percentage chance of winning, the most likely goalscorers and where the most likely clean sheets will come from.

Everton vs Tottenham

  • Home Win: 30%
  • Draw: 30%
  • Away Win: 40%

Injury-hit Everton drew 0-0 against Brighton last week as their season continues to drift without a solid push for a top six place. The draw made it four Premier League games without a win for the Toffees.

In Gameweek 32, Everton face Tottenham at home. The visitors are coming off a bad result and poor performance as they lost 3-1 at home to Manchester United. Son Heung-Min scored the only goal of the game for Spurs, which was his first since Gameweek 23.

Goalscorer: Harry Kane 48%

Newcastle vs West Ham

  • Home Win: 25%
  • Draw: 27%
  • Away Win: 48%

Newcastle welcomed back some of their key attacking players from injury and won 2-1 at Burnley as a result. Allan Saint-Maximin was involved in both goals after coming off the bench. The midfielder’s goal and assist earned him 12 FPL points.

West Ham take on Newcastle this week after continuing their outstanding form with a valuable 3-2 win over Leicester City. Once again, Jesse Lingard was the star as his brace contributed to the victory whilst registering 14 FPL points. Priced at just £6.5m, Lingard is averaging 9.5 points per game based on form.

Goalscorer: Callum Wilson 35%

Clean Sheet

  • Home: 22%
  • Away: 36%

Wolves vs Sheffield United

  • Home Win: 58%
  • Draw: 27%
  • Away Win: 15%

Wolves snatched a late win after a 92nd minute goal against Fulham last week. Adama Traore was the man who found the back of the net for Wolves, which was his first of the season.

Wolves will hope to build on the momentum in their match against bottom of the league, Sheffield United, in Gameweek 32. The Blades were swept aside by Arsenal last week in a game which ended 3-0 to the Gunners.

Arsenal vs Fulham

  • Home Win: 56%
  • Draw: 26%
  • Away Win: 18%

After a disappointing defeat the week before, Arsenal bounced back and won 3-0 away at Sheffield United. Alexandre Lacazette scored two of the goals to make it five goals in the last six games for the French striker. Owned by just 8.3% of FPL teams, Lacazette could be a great differential for the remainder of the season.

Fulham head to the Emirates this weekend to face Arsenal after a missed opportunity against out of form, Wolves. The Cottagers fell to a 1-0 defeat in the 92nd minute and they now sit six points from safety.

  • Draw: 18%
  • Away Win: 10%

Manchester United strengthened their position in the top four after beating Tottenham 3-1. Edinson Cavani put it in a man of the match performance and came away with a goal and an assist. If the striker can keep fit, he is a great differential option with just a 2.2% ownership.

The Red Devils will take on Burnley at Old Trafford this week. The Clarets lost 2-1 to Newcastle last week which may have dragged them into a relegation battle. £4.8m striker, Matej Vydra scored for the second week running, further cementing his place in the starting XI.

  • Away Win: 58%

Leeds ended top of the league, Man City’s, winning streak in their surprise 2-1 victory. Defender, Stuart Dallas scored both goals for Leeds which gave him 17 FPL points, the most from any player in the gameweek.

The next challenge for Leeds will be the reigning champions, Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s side appear to have turned a corner in the league as their 2-1 home win against Villa made it three in a row. Mo Salah’s goal put joint top of the goalscoring leader board with 19 so far.
