GW32 Free hit teams – Free Hit Draft 1

FPL GW32 Free Hit Teams

Here’s our first GW32 free hit team and you can see what our strategy is in this one. We’ve got triple Arsenal and Liverpool as their games, are the ones we’re looking to target. They have players with good clean sheet odds, and attackers with high goal-scoring probability so it only makes sense to target their assets.

Other players being targeted in this gameweek 32 free hit team are:

  • Jordan Ayew – Since Hodgson took charge, Ayew has: The same number of penalty area touches (19) as Olise (7) & Eze (12) combined, The same number of shots in the box (6) as Olise (3) & Eze (3) combined and is only 0.4% owned. He’s the differential we’ve got in this team. However, if you aren’t comfortable going with differentials, then Eze is a solid pick as well.
  • Alex Moreno – Moreno is a player that has been really impressive in recent weeks. In fact, Villa have been solid at the back lately – they’ve kept four clean sheets in their last five games. Moreno got himself an assist last time out against Newcastle and also had an xA of 0.71.
  • Sam Johnstone – Johnstone is in the team because of his price and his guaranteed place in the Palace eleven considering the fact that Guaita is injured.
