FPL 22/23: 5.5 MIDFIELDERS • Talking starters and season rotation 🔄 🧵 + Stat sheets 📊 (@Fantasy Football Fix x @⚽ FBref ⚽) #FPL #FPLCommunity

The best 5.5 Midfielders to start with ✅: Non-Pen xGI (xG + xA) per 90 🦁 Ramsey: 0.21 🐺 Neto: 0.50 (small sample size) ⚒️ Fornals: 0.34 Total: Goals + Assist 🦁 Ramsey 7 (6G + 1A) 🐺 Neto 2 (1G + 1A) ⚒️ Fornals 10 (6G + 4A)

🟣🦁 Ramsey Stats per 90 ⤵️ Shots: 1.2 SoT: 0.4 SiB: 0.7 Key pass: 0.7 Crosses: 0.9 BCC: 0.1 Total ⤵️ Goals: 6 xG: 3.7 SoT: 11 SiB: 19 Assists: 1 xA: 2.1 Key pass: 20 Crosses: 26 BCC: 2

Villa have favourable fixtures and going with Ramsey is sort of a risk free punt as it’s early doors. Ramsey’ style of play is being a late runner into the box who cleans up any chances that comes his way. I think there’s good potential in these fixtures. ⚽️⚽️🤔

🟠🐺 Neto Stats per 90 ⤵️: 20/21 v 21/22 (small sample size) Shots: 2.2 v 3.3 SoT: 0.7 v 0.8 SiB: 1.2 v 1.9 Key pass: 2.2 v 2.5 Crosses: 7.2 v 7.2 BCC: 0.3 v 0.4 Cont.

Total ⤵️ Goals: 5 v 1 xG: 4.7 v 1.8 SoT: 21 v 4 SiB: 33 v 10 Assists: 6 v 1 xA: 5 v 1 Key pass: 61 v 13 Crosses: 205 v 37 BCC: 9 v 2

Wolves are a different side when Neto is playing, he becomes their main outlet in attack as the system is suited to him. Although Wolves do have a defensive setup, when they do counter attack, Neto will most likely be involved. He’s best 5.5 starter as he’s the most explosive imo

🟣⚒ Pablo Fornals (5.5) Stats per 90 ⤵️ Shots: 1.4 SoT: 0.4 SiB: 0.9 Key pass: 1.5 Crosses: 2.8 BCC: 0.3 Total ⤵️ Goals: 6 xG: 5.2 SoT: 12 SiB: 29 Assists: 4 xA: 5.3 Key pass: 48 Crosses: 87 BCC: 10

Fornals is getting overlooked because of the Man City fixture and that West Ham could sign another attacker. However, if West Ham don’t sign a winger/attacking midfielder then, Fornals is a great pick if you’re wc’ in GW8/9. Potentially covers Bowen? 😬🤔 There’s returns here!

The best 5.5 midfielders to rotate with 🔄: Non-Pen xGI (xG + xA) per 90 ☑️ 🍬 Gordon: 0.26 🍬 Gray: 0.34 🦅 Olise: 0.38 🦅 Eze: 0.21 (SSS) Total Goals + Assists ✅ 🍬 Gordon 7 (4G + 3A) 🍬 Gray 10 (5G + 5A) 🦅 Olise 8 (2G + 6A) 🦅 Eze 2 (1G + 1A)

🔵🍬 Gordon Stats per 90 ⤵️ Shots: 1.7 SoT: 0.7 SiB: 1 Key pass: 1.4 Crosses: 4.7 BCC: 0.2 Total ⤵️ Goals: 4 xG: 2.9 SoT: 18 SiB: 26 Assists: 3 xA: 3.2 Key pass: 36 Crosses: 120 BCC: 4

🔵🍬 Gray Stats per 90 ⤵️ Shots: 2.5 SoT: 0.6 SiB: 1.2 Key pass: 1.6 Crosses: 5 BCC: 0.3 Total ⤵️ Goals: 5 xG: 4.4 SoT: 17 SiB: 31 Assists: 5 xA: 4.1 Key pass: 42 Crosses: 129 BCC: 7

🔵🍬 Gordon/Gray Everton do have a nice run of fixtures between GW2-5 but I think it’s early to jump on their assets. During that time we will see where they’re at and how effective Gray/Gordon are. GW13-GW27 is the perfect time to bring one of them in. Set & forget? 🤔

🔴🔵🦅 Olise Stats per 90 ⤵️ Shots: 1.5 SoT: 0.8 SiB: 1 Key pass: 1.9 Crosses: 7.6 BCC: 0.6 Total ⤵️ Goals: 2 xG: 1.6 SoT: 10 SiB: 13 Assists: 6 xA: 3.7 Key pass: 24 Crosses: 96 BCC: 8

🔴🔵🦅 Eze Stats per 90 ⤵️: 20/21 v 21/22 (small sample size) Shots: 1.3 v 1.5 SoT: 0.5 v 0.2 SiB: 0.5 v 0.9 Key pass: 1.5 v 1.6 Crosses: 3 v 4 BCC: 0.2 v 0.2 Cont.

Total ⤵️ Goals: 4 v 1 xG: 2.6 v 0.5 SoT: 13 v 1 SiB: 15 v 7 Assists: 7 v 1 xA: 3.8 v 0.8 Key pass: 43 v 11 Crosses: 86 v 27 BCC: 5 v 1

🔴🔵🦅Olise/Eze Palace don’t have the best of fixtures at the start but it will allow us to see how they do till GW12, where we would want a Palace attacker. Now with Eze back, I can only imagine Palace being better in their attacks. I think Eze will be nailed but we shall see.

If you’ve made it this far, I’d like to say thank you and I appreciate you going through it all. This season we’re going to need a 5.5 midfielder and they’re some good picks! Keep drafting away managers! 😜👋 #FPL #FPLCommunity
