fpl darwin nunez replacements

Liverpool has a blank gameweek in GW26 and Darwin Nunez is an injury doubt for the following gameweek, so it is not a surprise to see, that he is one of the top transfers out this week.

Let’s look at who are the best Darwin Nunez replacements for Gameweek 26 in the Fantasy Premier League.

Best Darwin Nunez replacements in FPL

In our order, from the best

  1. Watkins (8.7m, Aston Villa) – our number one Darwin replacement. Second top scoring player in the game, good fixture run and has a fixture in blank gameweek 29. So ideal for managers who will not use any chip to navigate blank GW26.
  2. Solanke (6.9m, Bournemouth) – tough fixture in GW26, but then nice fixture run including a double gameweek 28 where you will want him in your team anyway. A great pick for managers that will use free hit in blank GW29.
  3. Hojlund (7.2m, Manchester United) – short term punt, he is in excellent form (6G + 2A in last 5 PL matches) and has a great fixture in GW26.
  4. Muniz (4.4m, Fulham) – an option if you decide to redistribute money from your attacker into midfield and play formation on just 2 forwards, while having Muniz on the bench. The plus is, you can play him in blank GW29 where he has a fixture. Raul Jimenez is not expected to be back in GW29.
