FPL GW34 Tips

Key notes for FPL GW34

Let’s start with our key notes for GW34 of FPL.

  • If on wildcard, bring in three Chelsea players to exploit DGW34 and DGW36
  • Avoid Manchester United players
  • Bring in Villa players due to double in GW36 and 37
  • If you still have your bench boost available, set up your bench now, so you could use the BB chip in GW36 or 37
  • There is not much value among attackers, you could try play 5-4-1 formation with Pukki as a striker
  • TAA, Robertson, Cancelo, Laporte, James are our back 5
  • do not try to play pep roulette by bringing in Manchester City attacker/mids. Focus on their defense. Cancelo, Ederson and Laporte should be the safe route to the points from City player. Bring in at leas two of them
