Week 30 Premier League Predictions 2016-17

Each week I take a look at the Premier League fixtures, table, and statistics to provide a brief analysis and predictions including FPL matchups for week 30.  Get your fantasy tips here to set your team whether you play in the official FPL game, daily fantasy, or a draft fantasy Premier League game.

While having a break from Premier League action was nice, especially for some teams like Manchester United, I’m very glad to have it returning this weekend. I’ve never been a fan of international soccer and even less so when it interrupts the Premier League season. What makes it even worse is when players get injured during their time with their national team. Seamus Coleman is the most recent of these.

Week FPL 30 FPL Matchups

The big thing to start looking at starting with week 30 is to build towards the double gameweeks coming up in both week 34 and week 37. In week 34 there are three teams with two matches:

Crystal Palace (v Liverpool (A) and Tottenham (H))

Manchester United (v Burnley (A) and Man City (A))

Middlesbrough (v Bournemouth (A) and Sunderland (H))

It should also be noted that West Brom does not have a match in week 34.

In week 37 there are 10 teams with two matches to play including:



Leicester City

Man City

Manchester United



West Ham


West Brom

My current plan is to gradually build up my team for week 34 and most likely play my bench boost. To prepare for week 37 I will likely use my wildcard in week 36 to prep then use my All Out Attack in week 37. Now, much of this will depend on whether all of those teams actually have a double gameweek in week 37 since that is currently a preliminary list that could change.

For this weekend, choosing a captain is going to be tricky. Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero face off at the Emirates while Romelu Lukaku has to travel to the red side of Liverpool. Perhaps the two best choices are Jaime Vardy at home against Stoke City and Diego Costa at home versus Crystal Palace. Eden Hazard would also be a good pick in this same matchup. If you’re looking for more of a differential captain pick, looking at someone like Alvaro Negredo of Middlesbrough against Swansea or even Robert Snodgrass with West Ham facing Hull City.
