We are already passed through the 1st part of the season, ups and downs on the league table as slowed down, teams will try to reinforce (so as the FPL managers) themselves in January to move upwards in the league table. After the end of FPL 2021/22 Gameweek 23, there has been a lot of share of points with the premium assets delivering huge points. Apart from the popular picks, there are quite a number of players, who have impressed over the weekend with points and underlying stats. The onset of good fixtures along with their form can really turn them into good replacements for the underperforming assets of the fantasy team. All the managers are trying to stabilize their teams with suitable options before the price hikes. In this FPL Gameweek 24 Watchlist 2021/22, we will be looking at 5 Fantasy players, who could become future transfer targets, carrying their good run.

FPL Gameweek 24 Watchlist 2021/22

The focus this week is primarily on big hitters with the announcement of a double gameweek 25 for Manchester United and the big Double gameweek 26 for other clubs. Also, we have kept an eye on the upcoming fixtures.

1. Ben Davis (Defender) – 4.5 million

Aymeric Laporte and Lucas Digne are perhaps more obvious defensive picks but the affordability of Ben Davies brings him into consideration. He can prove useful replacing any Chelsea defender that would free up the cash needed to fund premium assets like Ronaldo or Mo Salah in the coming weeks. Davies has started all but one match since the appointment of Antonio Conte in gameweek 11 where Spurs have kept 5 clean sheets in 10 games.

They rank 3rd best in that time with an average of 0.8 goals conceded per game and only Manchester City has fared better-unexpected goals conceded per game. Five of their next six opponents Southampton, Wolves, Burnley, Everton, and Leeds rank amongst the bottom 10 teams for goals scored per game this season. Besides their DGW26, Spurs have further two fixtures yet to be rescheduled against Brighton, and Arsenal.

2. Mohamed Salah (Midfielder) – 12.7 million

Egypt has advanced to the final of AFCON, they’ll now play their last match of the tournament on the 6th of February that’s just 2 days before the gameweek 24 deadline and 4 days before Leicester‘s visit to Anfield. However, Klopp has already confirmed that he expects both Salah and Mane will return to the club before the match day.

Salah is being phenomenal from the very beginning of the season, he has netted 16 goals and provided 10 assists so far. The Egyptian has an expected goals figure of 0.63 (xG) per 90 and an expected assist figure of 0.34 (xA) per 90. So, even with the uncertainty of playing in gameweek 24 and a blank gameweek 27 coming up for Liverpool, it’ll be hard to resist the urge to own Salah ahead of his home tie with Norwich and Leeds in double gameweek 26. It is needless to say, many fantasy managers will be using their triple captain chip on the Egyptian King for gameweek 26.

3. Heung-Min Son (Midfielder) – 10.6 million

After 2 weeks’ break Son is finally ready back in action. He is one of the premium options in FPL and he doing outstanding performance under Antonio Conte. In his last 6 matches, he has bagged a total of 48 FPL points with one double-digit haul. The South Korean International has direct hands in 7 goals ( 4 goals, 3 assists ) in the above-mentioned time.

Son has an expected non-penalty goals figure of 0.65 (xG) per 90 and an expected assist figure of 0.38 xA per 90 in the above-mentioned spell. The fixture looks pretty attractive for Spurs with the double game on gameweek 26. Apart from the Manchester City match their next 5 matches have a difficulty rating in the range of 2-3.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo (Forward) – 12.5 million

The confirmation of a double gameweek 25 for Manchester United means Cristiano Ronaldo could make a swift return to many teams. Despite failing to score in his last 3 outings, the 36-year-old has notched 5 goal involvements across his last eight appearances. During that period between gameweek 14 and 23, his total of 43 FPL points is level with Bruno Fernandes while David de Gea trails by just one point.
