GW2: Gundogan, Mahrez, Tsimikas – KEEP or SELL?

Keep or Sell some popular Fantasy Premier League picks before GW2?

Ilkay Gundogan

Gundogan trained normally for Man City in their last training sessions. 

Guardiola declared him to be fit for Norwich. It does not mean, he will start the match. But he faces Norwich, so he could score a lot of points even from the bench.

Verdict: Keep

Mahrez

Mahrez had an amazing pre-season, however, his performance in the FA Community Shield and in the first gameweek of the season was disappointed.

We are used to Pep rotation, so Algerian might easily find himself on the bench against Norwich.

However, it looks that De Bruyne is not fully fit, as he couldn’t train due to an ankle problem. If the Belgian does not play, there is one more spot in starting lineup for Mahrez to compete for. 

We would keep him, however, if you think about captaining him, that could be a big risk.

Verdict: Keep for Norwich, but do not captain him due to increased risk of benching

Tsimikas

It looks that Andy Robertson could be back in training soon. 

However it is still looking good for Tsimikas, so he should be starting for the Reds until the international break.

Verdict: Keep until international break, start him every week, then reassess and potentialy move him to the third bench spot.
