Fantasy Premier League: Hot tips ahead of GW 33


The end of the FPL season is in sight, but Gameweek 33 is upon us this weekend and there are still plenty of points to be gained.

After an eventful midweek in Europe the Premier League highlights the weekend with mouthwatering fixtures for the title-challenging teams in Gameweek 33 with each of Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City playing at home.

FPL bosses will be particularly interested to see how Arsenal and Liverpool perform considering both clubs play twice in gameweek 34, along with Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Everton, Sheffield United, and Wolves. Tripling up on Arsenal and Liverpool assets will be a popular move ahead of next week.

FPL experts are providing managers with everything they need to know ahead of the BGW33 whose deadline is on Saturday, 13 April at 13:00 (EAT). Eleven of the best players have been chosen for gameweek 33.



GOALKEEPER: Mark Flekken
The Bees’ no. 1 faces a Sheffield United side who have scored a league-low 13 goals in away matches this season. Flekken produced his season-high total of 11 points in his last home outing, combining a clean sheet with two save points and a maximum bonus.

DEF: Gabriel Magalhães (Arsenal)
The Brazilian has been integral to Mikel Arteta’s backline, playing all but 10 minutes of Arsenal’s league games in 2024. The Brazilian takes on the Villains on the back of six clean sheets in Arsenal’s last eight matches. He offers serious points potential at both ends of the pitch.

DEF: Lewis Dunk (Brighton)
The Seagull’s center-back can profit at both ends of the pitch at Turf Moor. Dunk has earned 38 points in Brighton’s last seven outings, combining a goal and an assist with three clean sheets on the road.

DEF: Sergio Reguilon (Brentford)
The Spaniard is playing advanced as a wing-back in the Bees’ current set-up, which gives him a significant boost for his attacking output. He has five assists already in this calendar year. With a home tie against bottom-of-the-league Sheffield United, who have scored a league-low 20 goals for this campaign. The Blades are particularly susceptible to conceding from set pieces, with Reguilon providing a left-footed option.

MID: Cole Palmer (Chelsea)
Chelsea youngster Cole Palmer’s sensational form continues, with three double-digit hauls in his last four games and no blanks: he has six goals and two assists to his name in this period. The young star blanked just once in a home start this season, with Stamford Bridge providing the backdrop for 11 of his 16 goals. Everton beat Chelsea in the reverse fixture 2-0 and they will be fired up for this one after a difficult week.

MID: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
There’s a compelling case to trust the armband with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah this week, with two goals in three games for the Egyptian since the international break. Salah sits top for shots among all players in this period with 21, including a leading tally of five big chances. He’s rarely rotated by Jurgen Klopp, with penalties providing an additional source of fantasy points.

MID: Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
Arsenal talisman Bukayo Saka got himself on the scoresheet once again in midweek in the 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich, as the Gunners battle in the quarter-final stage of the Champions League, but it was a concern to see him sustain some heavy knocks in that game as question marks remain over his fitness. He’s the highest-scoring midfielder in the game, while opponents Aston Villa have conceded eight in four.

MID: Kai Havertz (Arsenal)
The German has emerged as a huge influence on the Arsenal attack, producing all four of his double-figure scores this season in his last seven outings. If you are playing FPL Challenge, however, Havertz may be one to avoid due to his propensity to earn yellow cards – players will be penalised in Gameweek 33 of FPL Challenge as they will lose five points if they are booked. As a midfielder in Fantasy, Havertz earns five points for every goal he scores, so if he scores once and is booked, he loses all the points for his goal. 

FWD: Darwin Nunez (Liverpool)
The Uruguayan has become a consistent starter, and his rate of goal involvement is impressive, with 11 goals and 11 assists from 29 appearances in this campaign. He’s had 14 shots on goal since the international break, including two big chances. Opponents Crystal Palace have several key players injured in their defense, conceding seven goals in their last four league games.

FWD: Erling Haaland (Manchester City)CAPTAIN CHOICE
The Norwegian striker leads the projections as the best captain pick, as promoted Luton Town visit the Etihad. Haaland scored five goals against them in the FA Cup in February and has a narrow lead in the Premier League Golden Boot race, with 19 goals in this campaign. Four of his five league goals this calendar year have come on home turf and The Hatters are without a clean sheet on the road.

FWD: Ivan Toney (Brentford)
It was a rare appearance from the bench for Brentford’s Ivan Toney in the 3-3 draw against Aston Villa last weekend, as fitness issues hampered him during the congested schedule. A free midweek will help him coming into a clash with bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United. The English international sits third for shots on goal in the last four gameweeks with 14, while the Blades have conceded eight goals during that period.
