Fantasy Football reaches Gameweek 30 this weekend, with the complexion of the Premier League changing significantly from Gameweek 29. Manchester City are now table-toppers following Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Everton as the title race took yet another turn last time out. Elsewhere, the makeup of the bottom three remains the same as team jostle for position at the bottom of the table. With some vital fixtures taking place at the bottom and top of the Premier League, take a look at our three transfer tips to make in Gameweek 30 of Fantasy Football.
Fantasy Football: Three Transfers to make for Gameweek 30
Three Transfers to make for Gameweek 30
Team: Manchester United
Next Opponent: Arsenal (A)
There is arguably no more in-form striker in the Premier League than Romelu Lukaku at this moment in time, with the Belgian international scoring six goals in his last three appearances for Manchester United. Included in that run was a brace scored at the Parc des Princes as United incredibly overturned a two-goal deficit against Paris Saint-Germain to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to have slowly but surely restored confidence in his no.9, who is now playing back at the level we grew accustomed to seeing last season and in his time at Everton. You can guarantee there will be plenty of managers adding Lukaku to their team for this weekend, particularly when you note that the striker also picked up two assists in United’s FA Cup tie at the Emirates earlier this season.
Team: Leicester City
Next Opponent: Fulham (H)
The Brendan Rodgers era didn’t get off to the perfect start last weekend, as the Foxes were beaten 2-1 away at Watford. It wasn’t without the best efforts of Jamie Vardy, though, who got on the scoresheet for the third time in four appearances before being substituted with an ankle injury. Rodgers is hopeful Vardy will still be available this weekend despite the knock and in current form could well be an injury risk worth taking for Fantasy Football managers. Leicester face a Fulham side who have conceded 65 goals in 29 games in the Premier League this season and Vardy will be chomping at the bit to become the latest forward to benefit from their defensive generosity this weekend.
Team: Crystal Palace
Next Opponent: Brighton (H)
Crystal Palace skipper Luka Milivojevic has one of the game’s bargains this season, scoring 117 points from midfield and is still priced at just £6.3m. This weekend he leads his side out against rivals Brighton at Selhurst Park in the Premier League’s strangest derby and will be hopeful of adding to his tally of eight league goals this season. Seven of his eight goals have come from the penalty spot - the other being a free-kick - and the Serbian is coming up against a team in Brighton who have conceded more penalties (8) than any other team in the Premier League this season. If Brighton are reckless in the penalty area once again this weekend, expect Milivojevic to punish them from the spot.
