Gameweek 16 Rotation Risks

You can argue that there is no player in the Premier League currently more in-form than Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.1m) both from a defensive and offensive perspective. Liverpool’s flying full-back was once again the receipt of FPL points at both ends of the pitch in Gameweek 15, assisting the Reds’ opening goal in a 0-2 win away to Sheffield Utd. Alexander-Arnold has now recorded four attacking returns in his last three league appearances as he continues to show why he remains such a lucrative FPL asset when in good form. His fast-rising ownership will be hoping it continues in Gameweek 16 against Crystal Palace.

The entire Everton backline, plus goalkeeper Jordan Pickford (£4.4m) warrant a mention following consecutive clean sheets against Nottingham Forest and Newcastle respectively. James Tarkowski (£4.4m) and Jarrad Branthwaite (£4.1m) are forming a fantastic central defensive partnership and have looked impenetrable recently. Chelsea will not find it easy breaking them down at Goodison Park in Gameweek 16.

Wolves’ Hwang Hee-chan (£5.7m) continued his excellent form in 2023-24, scoring the only goal in his side’s 1-0 triumph over Burnley, his eighth league goal of the campaign. They face Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 16, who are coming off the back of four consecutive defeats, conceding 12 goals in the process.

It’s now four straight gameweeks in which Bukayo Saka (£8.9m) has managed one attacking return and only three gameweeks all season have passed that hasn’t seen the England international pick up at least one goal or assist. This puts into perspective just how reliable the Arsenal winger is at accruing points from an FPL point of view ahead of the Gunners’ tricky trip to Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
