Manchester United’s Champions League hero Marcus Rashford is the second most transferred out player ahead of Gameweek 30
We’re into the last quarter of the FPL season now and it’s most definitely ‘squeaky bum time’, as Sir Alex Ferguson once famously said
The legendary Manchester United boss was also famous for making ruthless calls when it came to his squad, and it would appear that FPL bosses are following suit here, with a couple of the league’s top marksmen making way.
In-keeping with the Sir Alex theme – his last ever signing is being snapped up by tens of thousands of FPL bosses ahead of Gameweek 30. Now who could that be?
All is revealed below, and as always, I wish all of you the very best of luck. Here’s to more green arrows!
Most transferred IN
Trent Alexander-Arnold – £5.5m | 19.2% owned
Liverpool’s young full-back has picked up where he left off on his return to the Reds’ line-up following a short spell out through injury. He’s recorded three assists and two clean sheets in his last two appearances, bringing in a whopping 27 points – and all for just £5.5m.
Jurgen Klopp’s side look to keep their title dreams alive in Gameweek 30, as Burnley visit Anfield, where the hosts have conceded just seven goals all season – with three of those coming in one match.
With that in mind, it’s no wonder over 108,000 FPL bosses have already made their move ahead of Saturday’s 11.30am deadline, with more of those big returns in the offing.
Wilfried Zaha – £6.9m | 13.7% owned
Crystal Palace’s talisman has hit form just at the right time, and his recent form of five goals in his last six has helped fire the Eagles to the brink of safety once again.
That fine form has forced the hand of an additional 85,000+ FPL bosses ahead of Gameweek 30, as Palace face rivals Brighton at Selhurst Park – a fixture in which Zaha scored twice last season.
The visitors claimed only their first league victory of 2019 in Gameweek 29, with an unconvincing win against rock-bottom Huddersfield at the Amex, and they have managed just one clean sheet on the road all season.
So, all things considered, it’s easy to see why the Ivorian follows Trent Alexander-Arnold as the second-most transferred in asset so far this week.
Most transferred OUT
P.E. Aubameyang – £10.9m | 20.3% owned
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s dramatic late penalty miss in the North London derby in Gameweek 29 was clearly the final straw for many FPL bosses, with over 115,000 and counting shipping out the Gabonese forward so far this week.
The former Dortmund man failed to make the Arsenal starting XI, and despite notching 16 Premier League goals so far this season, this wasn’t a major surprise given the better recent goal-scoring form of Alexandre Lacazette.
With the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Raul Jimenez on great goalscoring runs themselves – and guaranteed to start barring injury or suspension – there are serious points to be gained elsewhere, and at a fraction of the cost.
Marcus Rashford – £7.7m | 31.0% owned
A recent injury appears to have disrupted the rhythm of Marcus Rashford slightly, and expectation has risen to the point where it’s surprising to see him go three games without scoring, such was his incredible form in front of goal previously.
As a result of this mini-drought, over 86,000 FPL bosses have decided to discard the Manchester United forward ahead of his side’s Gameweek 30 clash with Arsenal at the Emirates.
That said, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side remain unbeaten in the league since he replaced Jose Mourinho back in December, and they continue to score goals aplenty, so FPL bosses would be foolish to write off Rashford’s chances of getting back amongst the goals here.
