Fantasy Football Tips: Three Transfers to make for Gameweek 29

Gameweek 29

Following a full schedule of midweek action in the Premier League, Fantasy Football is back this weekend for Gameweek 29. Now into the final 10 games of the season, managers across the land are either locked into title races for cash prizes or looking to avoid finishing bottom and facing a potential humiliating forfeit. There are two huge derbies across the weekend’s action, beginning on Saturday afternoon with Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Arsenal and Liverpool ending the Gameweek 29 with a trip across Stanley Park to face Everton.

Sadio Mane

Team: Liverpool

Value: £9.7m

Next Opponent: Everton (A)

Across what has been a difficult spell for Liverpool in recent weeks, Sadio Mane has been the player to have really stepped up and produced the goods in attack, with his goals potentially proving to be decisive in the title race come the end of the season. The Senegalese forward has netted six goals in his last six appearances in the Premier League for the Reds, including a brace against Watford in their 5-0 win over Watford at Anfield. They face Everton away from home in the Merseyside Derby this Sunday afternoon, a fixture in which Mane has previous in having scored a stoppage time winner against the Toffees in December 2016.

Luke Shaw

Team: Manchester United

Value: £5.1m

Next Opponent: Southampton (H)

Luke Shaw has well and truly made the left-back spot his own at Old Trafford this season, continuing his excellent form during his side’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night. The England international claimed the assist for Romelu Lukaku’s opener in the contest following an excellent run from the left flank before letting the Belgian slip the ball into the far corner. Shaw faces former side Southampton this weekend at Old Trafford, a team who failed to score in their previous away outing against Arsenal, making a clean sheet likely while he should also have plenty of license to drive forward and contribute in attack again.

James Maddison

Team: Leicester City

Value: £6.6m

Next Opponent: Watford (A)

Brendan Rodgers’ spell as Leicester City manager begins with a trip to one of his former clubs Watford, and one of the players who should really benefit from his arrival is attacking midfielder James Maddison. The 22-year-old has five goals and five assists to his name this season, picking up an assist in their 2-1 win over Brighton in midweek and was often playing with less freedom than he would like under Claude Puel. Rodgers has a history in developing and improving young attacking players and expect Maddison to be a central part of his plans going forward, starting with Sunday.
