FPL tips, changes, suggestions: Son in? Kane captain? Iheanacho and Lingard sustainable?

FPL managers will be preparing for Double Gameweek 32 that kicks off the business end of this riveting PL season.

Gameweek 31 was a bit frustrating for FPL managers, as it yielded an average of 41 FPL points. Popular FPL assets like Harry Kane, Bruno Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne all blanked. Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard, Kelechi Iheanacho and surprisingly, Stuart Dallas all registered double-digit hauls.

Gameweek 32 will see Jose Mourinho’s Spurs play twice. FPL managers will be targeting the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Sergio Reguilon. Considering poor form of Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Sterling, Mane, it can be a good option to swap them out for Son.

Kane and Son: With 50% of teams consisting of Harry Kane, he will definitely be the most captained player this gameweek. So, if you are trying to gain points, then I suggest go with someone else, especially if you own him already. The best option in my opinion would be to captain Son and keep Kane as VC, in case Son is injured or doesn’t play a match.

Lingard and Iheanacho: You would think Son would be the most transferred player. However, he comes in 2nd after Lingard. He now has eight goals and four assists in nine starts for David Moyes’ men – that’s just two assists shy of his best season at Manchester United (2017/18), but from about 1,000 minutes less pitch-time.

Leicester were poor in the first half, improved in the second and, in Iheanacho, have a red-hot striker.

His brace took him to seven goals from his last five starts, four of which have come with maximum bonus awards, and he now has an ownership (11.8%) bordering on the respectable.

Like Lingard, he’s attracting more managers for Gameweek 32, and the Foxes’ immediate schedule – West Brom, Crystal Palace and Newcastle at home, Southampton away – certainly warrants that interest.

Crucially, he has outscored Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) by 52 points to 23 since Double Gameweek 26, besting him for 21 attempts on goal to nine during the same period.

Final suggestions: Lingard, Iheanacho can be huge assets at a cheap cost for the remaining 7 gameweeks. Son and Kane can push you ahead in the league. Make sure you choose your captain wisely.
