To begin our Gameweek 33+ picks, we turn to the first of two Manchester United selections. Whilst Bruno Fernandes continues his electric start to life at Old Trafford, Anthony Martial revels in a more advanced role and Paul Pogba again looks to found his interest in a Red Devils’ shirt, instead, we turn to a man in Marcus Rashford who whilst may not have been amongst the goals since resumption, could come to the party this weekend.
Having hit seven goals since the Premier League restarted two weeks ago, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men look to have retained the spark rediscovered earlier this season and as a beleaguered AFC Bournemouth travel to the Theatre of Dreams, the trip could be ripe for Cherries’ nightmares.
In the case of Rashford, though the United and England front man may not have netted in three, remains a focal point of the United attack and notched a brace of assists against Sheffield United in Gameweek 31+.
Rashford has scored 14 goals this term and despite not scoring in the last three, it should not be forgotten that before sustaining injury before the COVID-19 hiatus had bagged four in five.
He may have lost penalty duties to the imperious Fernandes, but after regaining something close to his sharpest best from a team collective point of view, could be ready to spring from the traps versus Bournemouth. A real differential to consider.
As Liverpool return to Anfield to play their first game in front of the Kop as Premier League champions, the Reds entertain relegation-scrapping Aston Villa and after the hosts put four past Crystal Palace on home turf last time out, Sadio Mane could be just the ticket for Gameweek 33+.
On the back of 4-0 thrashing against Manchester City, the Reds party was suitably doused at the Etihad and unhappily for the visiting Villans this weekend, Dean Smith’s men could be in for quite a backlash.
In the case of Mane, the Senegalese has only four goals to his name in the last seven – since returning from a short absence through injury – but appears primed to to increase on his 15 goals this term here.
Villa have for the duration of the campaign had an issue with conceding from the right hand side, and after could be met by the Reds’ scorn at Anfield, with Mane poised to strike.
The Liverpool forward has just a single brace to his name this term but with the hosts keen to make a emphatic riposte, Mane’s 12.4 price-tag may look like value for money after 90 minutes.
Our second slice of the Manchester United pie comes in the form of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is rapidly becoming one of the most solid full-backs in the league, whilst evolving as a growing threat from the flanks.
A £50m arrival 12 months ago from Crystal Palace, the 22-year-old’s presence in the back line has been a welcome addition for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however due to the Red Devils’ faltering defensive unit had not brought with it a plethora of fantasy points hauls.
Keeping just three clean sheets in his 22 games played up until Gameweek 24 – with just a single assist – Wan-Bissaka’s fortunes have transformed of late, with six shutouts in the last eight Gameweeks. Since the resumption also, the United full-back has assisted in back-to-back 3-0 victories, with three bonus points across the two weeks of action.
With his value on the rise (5.4), Wan-Bissaka’s ownership now stands at 18.1% and as the ramshackle Cherries roll into town, the hosts will be on the hunt for goals aplenty in Gameweek 33+.
As his attacking stocksbegins to rise for the remainder of the season, the threat of rotation with Diogo Dalot lingers, but with Wan-Bissaka’s form at both ends of the field, his position appears stable, with the possibility of further spoils until the end of July. If United inflict heavy punishment on the visitors, expect the full-back to be in the points shake-up.
After a chastening 3-0 defeat to United, Brighton & Hove Albion were reminded of the still-lingering threat of relegation. As the Seagulls flock to East Anglia in Gameweek 33+ to face Norwich City however, Neal Maupay will be looking to fire his side away from trouble.
Given only 45 minutes last time out, the French striker comes into the game at Carrow Road relatively fresh. Taking on a Canaries side six points from safety and looking doomed after conceding eight since the Premier League resumed, Maupay will be licking his lips here.
One away from double figures, the Brighton hitman will be seeking his tenth of the season versus a Norwich side that have not kept a single clean sheet since February.
Maupay has proved a tricky customer for opposing back lines and at a cost of just 5.7, could be a shrewd short-term acquisition for fantasy managers, not least for Gameweek 33+.
Two full-backs you say? For our final pick of Gameweek 33+, we return to regular fantasy hunting ground in Leicester City, however, with both Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes looking out of sorts since resumption, James Justin might be a very canny selection for our squads.
With points machine Ricardo Pereira out with a knee injury, Justin has slotted in at right-back for the stricken Portuguese. As the cheapest Foxes’ defender in Brendan Rodgers‘ starting XI, the young Englishman comes at a cost of just 4.7, and with an ownership of less than 1% stands as a real differential.
Leicester may not have been at their best since the league began once more in Gameweek 30+, but the hosts have kept a clean sheet in their last two home games – including the one before lockdown – and at the King Power are as durable as ever.
As Crystal Palace come to town, the Foxes might be looking to tighten things up at the back but going forward, Justin has his own attacking flavour and in his first ten Premier League minutes when brought on as a sub against Watford earlier this term, wasted no time in setting up a goal.
The English full-back is already making waves in the international picture, and just like the rest of Leicester’s rolling footballing conveyor belt appears to have a bright future. In the short term, Justin has the potential to be superb value, not least against the Eagles.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 33+ deadline is Saturday, 11:30 UK time.
