Key notes for FPL GW33

Let’s start with our key notes for GW33 of FPL.

  • If you have free hit AND wildcard left, GW33 is perfect to use the free hit
  • If you do not have free hit, you could focus on Manchester United players who could potentially have two double gameweeks in row (GW33+GW34) if Chelsea beat Crystal Palace on Sunday and their fixture against red devils gets moved to GW34
  • In GW33, focus on Leicester, Arsenal, Newcastle and Manchester United players
  • If you are on free hit, you do not need to have full XI of double gameweekers – single gameweek players from City and Spurs are great options as well
  • Best goalkeepers for FPL GW33: Schmeichel (save points potential) or Ramsdale (clean sheet potential but Arsenal defense is out of form). 
  • Differential: James Justin
