Gameweek 15 Three Things We Learned

TRANSFERS IN

Cole Palmer (£5.4m) – Chelsea
After not featuring in the starting line-up for Chelsea last Sunday, Palmer was back in the XI in Gameweek 15 and marked it with his first Premier League goal since Gameweek 12. The former Man City academy graduate found the net at Old Trafford, scoring what was his fifth league goal of the campaign and his eighth attacking return. Such a cheap price-tag is what is likely driving the sea of transfers for Palmer, who boasts over 342,000 new owners leading into Gameweek 17, which sees Chelsea face Everton at Goodison Park.

Hwang Hee-chan (£5.7m) – Wolves
Trailing just behind Palmer is FPL-listed midfielder Hwang, with around 330,000 FPL managers having recently acquired his services following Gameweek 15. Hwang was the match-winner for Wolves in a hard-fought 1-0 triumph over Burnley, which earned him 10 fantasy points. Like Palmer, Hwang’s consistency as a starter has been impressive across the season from an attacking perspective, having accrued eight goals and two assists. On the back of 18 FPL points across his last three appearances, new owners of Hwang will have high hopes for Gameweek 16 and Wolves’ home fixture against struggling Nottingham Forest.

TRANSFERS OUT

Matty Cash (£4.8m) – Aston Villa
FPL bosses continue to ship out Matty Cash in their droves after the Polish international was benched once again in Gameweek 15, this time against Man City. The fact that Aston Villa went on to beat the Premier League champions 1-0, recording their first clean sheet since all the way back in Gameweek 6, only serves to rub salt in the wounds of those who kept faith in cash. With Arsenal at home next up for Unai Emery’s side, Cash’s ownership will continue to slide right up to the Gameweek 16 deadline.

Nick Pope (£5.4m) – Newcastle
Newcastle’s superb win over Man Utd last weekend came at a huge cost with the news that Nick Pope had sustained a bad shoulder injury, which is set to keep him out for months. As a result, the Magpies’ first-choice goalkeeper didn’t feature in Gameweek 15 and those who own Pope are understandably moving him out their squads as quickly as possible.
