Week FPL 23 FPL Matchups
The top two teams for FPL matchup picks this weekend are certainly Arsenal and Tottenham. From those teams Alexis Sanchez and Harry Kane are the two best options available and certainly captain worthy picks as well.
It should be noted that Liverpool’s desperation has reached the point of providing a private jet for Sadio Mane to return to the squad for Tuesday’s match against Chelsea, which means that he should be available again for those fantasy managers who want to add him.
One interesting match could be Stoke City v Everton with Saido Berahino’s move to Stoke this past week. Whether or not he will play is a question, but if he does, he is another interesting fantasy option. On the other side, Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku have looked good for Everton in recent weeks.
Let’s hope that the recent FA Cup matches haven’t worn out any of these teams and we can get some quality matches this midweek.
